Totara Students

At Hikuai School staff and students alike live by our TOTARA Values

TRUSTWORTHY - ORGANIZED - THOUGHTFUL - AWARE - RESPECTFUL AND RESILIENT - AMBITIOUS

Pupils who use these values are recognized by teachers and their peers, and receive a Totara Leaf with their name on it plus the value they have demonstrated. The student then places the leaf on the Totara tree outside the library. The pupil who has received the most Totara leaves at the end of 3 weeks is awarded the Totara Cup at assembly, and is able to take the cup home. The student who has collected the most Totara leaves over the whole year has their name engraved on the the cup and receives this sought after award at the annual prize giving. The Totara Cup and associated values are an important part of our school life, and help us strive to be the best we can be. 

2017 Totara Cup winners to date.
