Student Leadership

We want to ensure our student leadership roles are meaningful and purposeful; that students have the opportunity to experience leadership; and that responsibilities are shared across key roles.


  1. To be present and provide active student leadership across the school;
  2. To act as tuakana providing positive role models and mentoring for younger students (teina); and
  3. To organise and facilitate key events that create a culture of community and wairua in our school.


Vertical Whare (House) structure, horizontal Whaanau Roopuu (previously vertical form class). Each year level will be led by 2x Kaitiaki Aakonga (previously Deans).

*Ngaa Amokura will not be specifically aligned with houses, but selected on their individual merits and strengths. Ngaa Amokura includes our BoT Student Representative. Ngaa Amokura will each be expected to lead one of each of the Kaunihera Akonga (Student Councils).
Additional to the traditional Head Student roles in 2020 there will be 2 additional Amokura roles: 1x Rangatahi Maaori and 1x Pasifika. These students will lead Maaori and Pasifika roopuu respectively.
It is anticpated that this will expand in 2021 to include 2x Rangatahi Maaori (1x male and 1x female) and 2 x Pasifika (1x male and 1x female).


(previously prefects and house leaders).

Each of ngaa kaunihera aakonga will each have 4x Kaiaarahi Kaunihera (total 24x Kaiaarahi Kaunihera across the school). These students will support and work with the Amokura (Head students + BoT representative leading ngaa kaunihera akonga).
Additionally, there will be leadership opportunities for Kia Tupu/ Year 10 students – 2x Kia Tupu Kaiaarahi per Kaunihera.

NGAA KAITAUTOKO TUAKANA – Peer support leaders

Kia Puawai/ Year 12 and Tu Rangatira/ Year 13 aakonga will also have the opportunity to apply for a Tuakana role. These aakonga will be responsible for the peer mentoring and induction of He Kakano – new Year 9 students entering our school. A programme of induction and mentoring will be established and they will need to be trained to implement this programme with He Kakano.
