Manaakitanga means the process of showing kindness, respect, generosity and caring for others. At RIS we have developed a comprehensive School Wide Awards system to help promote and recognise students achievements in these areas. These awards motivate the students to demonstrate the 3Rs in all areas of their learning and help foster Manaakitanga throughout the school.


We encourage parents to invest in their child’s future learning by purchasing for them their own chromebook, thereby allowing for anytime, anywhere learning.
