Malo Lava, Kia Ora, Malo e Lelei, Ni Hao, Bok! Hello!!
At our school we empower students to become lifelong learners
We ASPIRE through PEMBROKE to inspire the world
To ASPIRE, we use the values of... A - Ambition, S - Service, P - Perseverance, I - Integrity, R - Respect, E - Empathy...
We provide diverse opportunities for all our learners to enhance understanding. These include developing student leaders, building creative and critical thinking skills through a range of relevant sporting, cultural and community experiences.
As a community our Board and PTA committee support the team and learners. The Pembroke Team are caring, reflective and innovative in their work for our learners.

Malo Lava Parents and Caregivers,
We have started into a new phase of New Zealand’s response to COVID-19 and it is very different than anything most of us have ever experienced. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone for the care and love they have conveyed to our school. I would like to especially thank the awesome Pembroke Team for showcasing calm and poise as we transitioned from the school lockdown to the Pembroke School Online Learning Classroom.
During the 4 week lockdown period you will understand the importance of routine for your aiga. If your routine has been shaken up, like you’re now working from home, it’s good to structure your time. Routines are reassuring, and promote health and physical well being. The below timetable (targeted at children) could be something your household adapts to use over the next weeks. A school holiday version will likely look a little different, but some form of routine will still be important as we go through the lockdown period.

As the Prime Minister has noted staying at home will break the chain and save lives; breaking the rules could risk someone close to you and if the rules are not complied with, this could risk the lock down period being extended or could risk the virus being spread to thousands
As we enter the holiday break the Pembroke Team will support students through their scheduled timetabling. The focus for the Pembroke Team now is their own families. Good luck to you and your aiga in creating a 'normal' over the next 4 weeks. I look forward to connecting with you online.
