Positive Behaviour 4 Learning
At Tauhara Primary School, our aim, through the Aroha programme, is to create and keep a safe and effective environment that will make the most of the academic, social and behavioural strengths of the community of learners, through clear and consistent expectations.
We have chosen AROHA for the programme name as all our school expectations relate to this acronym.
Reach for the Highest Peak

Apply self-determination / self management skills to demonstrate your own inspiration,
own autonomy and own leadership
Ngakau - heartfelt emotions, feelings, affections
Hihiko - to be lively, active, cheerful, positive, positive attitude, to act out these positive emotions.
In 2012 we became part of the Ministry initiative to take on board PB4L.
A team was formed and coaches and leaders took up their roles.
