Poraka is the last room our children will be part of before they head off to school. With this in mind we provide more opportunities here for children to become self directed and independent in their learning. They are exposed to more literacy and numeracy to help them prepare for school and with an abundant supply of interesting provocations we cater to all interests that are going on in the room. The children in this room have many opportunities to be exposed to community resources and regular walks up the maunga are enjoyed by all. When children are 4 years old they are involved in a readiness for school programme which consists of school visits and group learning experiences.
