What is a KURA kid?

We are currently on a programme called PB4L (Positive Behaviour For Learning).  At Tītahi Bay School we promote and focus upon these values: We are kind, we work together in unity, we are respectful, we aspire to achieve.  We are KURA (Kindness, Unity, Respect, Achieve). You can also contact our KURA Kids Coordinator to hear more about this programme.  We use the Restorative Practice model in our school.

In the classroom we operate on a Traffic Light Behaviour system.

Our KURA Kids Song

Kakano, Koru, Rakau
Ngahere, together we will grow
We will grow
From my School to my family
I’m bringing change to my community

Singing

I’m a KURA kid, living the KURA way
Everywhere I go
My home is Tītahi Bay
Kindness, Unity, Respect and Achieve
Every Single Day
I’m living the KURA way

I’ll do my best, I’ll strive to succeed
Include others, we are all family
Tell me a joke, I’ll laugh with you
And I’ll be learning when I’m 22

If you’re lonely I’ll be your friend
When you fall down I’ll help you get back up again
Work together, we can achieve
‘Cos we’re stronger, united
We work for our dreams!

Tēnā Koutou Katoa, Ko Miranda McMahon tōku ingoa.
I have had the pleasure of teaching at Tītahi Bay School for over 25 years. I love the Bay, I love our community and I really love our KURA and the people in it.
Always lots of fun to be had in the Bay – I live with my husband Jason, our 3 children and our much loved dog Kora. The beach is my happy place and I enjoy travelling to soak up the sun.
He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tāngata! He tāngata! He tāngata!
What is the most important thing in the world? It is people! It is people! It is people!
