The Ako Langimalie Preschool is located at 119 Rowandale Avenue, Manurewa. The school is the result of a partnership between the Tongan Health Society and the Ministry of Education.
Ako Langimalie is a bilingual center staffed by Tongan teachers. The school’s programme is based on the Te Whariki Curriculum, which is the New Zealand national curriculum.
Te Whariki is a framework for providing tamariki (children’s) early learning and development within a sociocultural context.
We look forward to seeing you at our Ako Langimalie Preschool!
“Langimalie – we use the concept of a bright, clear sky to speak about the bright, open and happy face of a person”
|Ofa||Energy and compassion|
|Toka’i||Knowing the basis and sources of knowledge|
|Ilo, Ako, Poto||Knowing what to teach (ilo), how to teach (ako) and applying what is taught (poto)|
|Mafana & Malie||Warmth and happiness that stems from the hearts of people.|
These are the principles that guide us each day as we work with your children.
Our programme of learning is based on ‘Te Whariki’. It is a blend of free play, group learning and focused activities .
