Ako is a Māori word meaning "to learn" or "inquire". The primary function of our Ako groups is that each teacher is responsible for the pastoral care of one Ako Group, which includes acting as the first point of contact for parents if they have questions about their child’s learning or what is happening at Endeavour School.
Our Ako groups are all named after New Zealand’s native birds. Most The students will mostly remain in the same Ako for their time at Endeavour School but their Ako group teacher will change as they move through the school.
You will need to know your child's Ako group to register with our online payment system. If you are unsure, please check with one of the teachers in your child's Learning Community or phone the office.
