Welcome to Rongomai School

At Rongomai School we want to offer our students engaging, enriching, interesting, authentic and responsive learning experiences that connect to them as individuals by honouring who they are; their individuality; their interests and their passions.


Dear Rongomai Families,

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Principal, Whaea Paeariki, who passed away unexpectedly in her sleep last night. We are deeply saddened by this sudden loss and our hearts go out to her family, friends, and the entire Rongomai community.

We understand this news may be difficult to process, especially for our students. Please assure your children that counsellors are available to provide support throughout this challenging time.

In the coming days, we will be working closely with officials from the Ministry of Education, NZ Pasifika Principals Association, and local agencies to support us all. Further details regarding memorial arrangements and school operations will be shared with our community through our website and school app.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Miss Sarah Faifua or our Facebook Page. We will also use our School Loop platform to share information and updates.

We extend our deepest sympathies to Whaea Paeariki’s family and friends during this difficult time. We will work together to support each other and ensure that Rongomai School continues to thrive in her memory.


Christina Talimalo-Stanley
