OUR STAFF

Principals's Welcome

We are very lucky to have such a talented and professional staff at our school.  Everyone - from teachers and teacher aides to our admin staff, caretaker and leadership team - are all focussed on ensuring that all of our tamariki receive the very best teaching and learning possible.  

I'm proud of our team, and proud to be part of our team.
