HE KŌRERŌ MAI I O MĀTOU RANGATIRA - A WORD FROM OUR PREFECT LEADERS
2023 Head Prefects
Kia ora koutou katoa
As your Tuakana Matua, your Head Prefects from 2023, we can assure you that your experience here will be nothing short of exceptional.
This year we have worked on improving our learning environment for your future at Te Kamo High School. We have ensured that we leave a strong whakareretanga (legacy) for the future Tuakana Matua to build on from. Our main focus this year was to listen to our akonga and make the changes they need to have the healthy school environment they deserve. As our school’s buildings, uniform and whare, Te Puna a Rehua, are undergoing an improved change, so is our focus on Te Kamo’s identity.
Kamo High School is Whangārei’s largest co-ed school that caters to every student’s interests and passions. Our kura is entirely student focused, and in our experience we have found Te Kamo High School to be supportive of our learning by prioritizing our educational needs. Te Kura Tuarua o Te Kamo is inclusive to all ranges of people in providing opportunities in arts, cultural, sports, and academic departments and an environment in which you will find life-long friendships. The last five years at Te Kamo have been life-changing and have helped prepare us for future experiences, pathways, and opportunities that may come our way. We are looking forward to seeing how far Kamo High School will go. We have genuinely enjoyed our time at Te Kura Tuarua o Te Kamo. We know you will too. Itiiti rearea, teitei kahikatea ka taea.
