Any school, Marist included, has plenty of protocol and traditions involved in the daily life of the school. The Tikanga expressed in school can also be spread throughout our wider community. Some examples of our school "customs" follow ↓

Tikanga applies to many aspects of daily Marist life

Teaching in itself is a Tikanga Maori value, we apply it not only to culture and history, but to Math, Science and English too!

Wearing school uniform correctly, and with pride is an essential everyday part of protocol we follow at Marist.

Many of the Tikanga Maori values can and have been directly applied to our Marist Community.
