HOME SCHOOLING ADVICE FROM NATHAN WALLIS
Nathan Wallis is a well-known and renowned kiwi neuroscience educator.
"There is no academic emergency this week, so don't be quick to set up a home school. Our country is in a crisis and we are all stressed and tired. Stressed adults cannot teach stressed children. It is a neuro-biological impossibility. Try focusing on connections and feelings of safety." Nathan Wallis

KingsGate School is an active Christian learning community nestled in the heart of Pukekohe that nurtures children towards their full potential in God's Kingdom.
We can offer your child...
“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”
“To be a Christian community of learning that nurtures young people towards their full potential as servant leaders in the kingdom of God.”
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.
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.
