South East Christian Kahui Ako

Since the inception of the Kahui Ako the schools in our community (Elim Junior School, Elim Christian College, ourselves, Our Lady Star of the Sea, St Marks Catholic Primary School, Sancta Maria Catholic Primary School, Sancta Maria College) have been working together  to create a Christ centred community of learning.

School Goal

“A student leaving KingsGate School at the end of Year 8, having been at the school for at least three years, will be achieving at or above the national norms in the core areas of literacy and numeracy and will have a firm understanding of a Christian worldview” 

School Mission Statement

“To be a Christian community of learning that nurtures young people towards their full potential as servant leaders in the kingdom of God.” 

School Motto

" To Know - To Love - To Serve"

School Motto Te Reo

" Kia Mohio - Ki Te Aroha - Ki Te Mahi"

The KingsGate Graduate Profile

Unlike a mission or vision statement, a graduate profile is a document or illustration that a school uses to specify the cognitive, personal, and interpersonal competencies that students should have when they graduate. 


The Kingsgate graduate profile was co-created with input from key stakeholders and provides a clear visualization of priority goals for teaching and learning. The graduate profile is easily communicated to students, parents, staff and board of trustees and can be used to align our collective efforts.




The KingsGate Teacher Profile

Being a teacher at KingsGate School is a privilege and an honour. KingsGate School teachers are charged with providing a unique education for our students.  Teachers deliver the New Zealand Curriculum through a Biblical world-view framework whereby all teaching and learning strategies are found within the teaching of Christ our Lord.  They approach each child’s learning journey holistically ensuring that they provide an environment where their students emotional, academic and spiritual needs are met to the fullest extent possible. It takes a special person to be a KingsGate School teacher and as such we choose teachers who actively display the traits in the KingsGate School Teacher profile illustration.
