Arotahi is Ao Tawhiti's learning management system. This is the place to record your learning by:

  • making a Rangitaki (Blog) about your learning, from class, hapori, SDL or an OSLD.
  • recording Kanohi ki te kanohi (face to face or one to one) meetings.
  • recording notes from your hui about your individual education plan for the term.

It is also where students Year 7 and up can find akoranga (course) information each term.

It syncs daily with KAMAR (our student management system), so uses the same login username as the PORTAL. Initially you should authenticate with your school google account, from there you can set a password if you wish.

The PORTAL is where you can:

  • find your timetable.
  • see live attendance data.
  • see financial information.
  • request school details to be changed.
  • look at all NCEA data.
  • see all results from across the school:
    • Learning Outcomes.
    • Baseline testing.
    • NCEA results and entries.
