We are a U4, full primary school located in Waitangirua, Porirua. Our students are culturally diverse, and we celebrate the richness this brings to our school.

Our whānau have helped us to understand that learning leads development and occurs in relationships with people, places and things, mediated by participation in valued social and cultural activities.

Tangata whenuatanga is respected and acknowledged. Whānau collaboration, participation, partnership and support connects the learning between school and home. Our children know that Porirua East is a place where they belong.
