Community of Learning | Kāhui Ako
A collaborative relationship between twelve local schools creating a learning community.
Our community is located on the edge of the Waitakere Ranges, with much of its hinterland being native bush reserve which flows down to Auckland's west coast beaches and Manukau Harbour. On our eastern boundary we connect with the rapidly growing and vibrant urban area of New Lynn.
The majority of our students come from the suburbs of Titirangi, Green Bay and Glen Eden, the semi-rural and bush reserve areas of Laingholm and Huia, and the fringe of New Lynn. Consequently our community reflects the wide range of demographic and socio-economic diversity that is one of the defining characteristics of Auckland.
Reaching 7,052 students, our community drives forward learning delivering results for students, parents and teachers alike.

Being part of Kōtuitui is valuable as we meet other colleagues, learn about differing percpectives and points of view and work together to raise student achievement.
Using collaborative development techniques we are delivering across our community and yours.
Community members contribute pedagogy (teaching), leadership and new ideas to collaboratively develop improved inquiry cycles specific to our current generation of learners.
Working in conjunction with community schools and individual teachers, the Kotuitui community delivers the latest in inquiry development.
Students and schools benefit from improved educational achievement as we lift the aspirations of our learners to new heights, driving real change in our local communities.
