Our Vision and Values

Mission Statement

To provide a safe and supportive environment for our students to be educationally extended and challenged so that they may be motivated with a passion to learn.


Mining every opportunity’ so our students will be confident, successful, lifelong learners.


Recently, we adopted a cartoon version of Goldfields Sam (our school logo and mascot) to bring Sam to 'life' for our students, staff, whanau and community.

Goldfields Sam reminds us of our school values by always telling us to do things R.I.G.H.T.!

At Kumara School doing things R.I.G.H.T. means acting and thinking in a manner with respect (whakaute), inquiry (pakirehua), growth (tupu), honesty (ngākau pono), & teamwork (mahi tahi).
