Realise your greatness - He uri koe nō te hunga Atua - nōu te ao.
At Te Kōpuku High, we firmly believe that we have all inherited a unique blend of greatness from our tupuna / ancestors.
The 'greatness' you have inherited - Tōu Atuatanga.
During enrolment, students and their whānau are encouraged to help us understand the student’s unique blend of greatness and how to make the most of these attributes. The student’s whakapapa - those layers that form an important part of who we are in the world, remind us of our cultural heritage and language, a lineage of great navigators, innovators and chiefs.
