Principal’s Message


Kia ora koutou 

Our Whangaparaoa Primary School learning community is excited to extend a warm and friendly welcome to new students and families.

A sense of whānau and community is a strength of our school and we encourage our students to live by a set of values that will help them be great citizens in their communities.

We are all learners at Whangaparaoa and we know, if we work together, a strong sense of team and success can be achieved.

Our vision is to connect with our students and families and build strong relationships. With this foundation in place, we will then aim to ignite the learning experience and work with the learner to discover new thoughts, questions and passions.

Throughout this process we will look to empower our learners so that they are competent and confident citizens in the world they are growing up in. We aim to be responsive to the needs of each individual and personalise a set of learning experiences that are both meaningful and motivating.

“What’s best for the children” is central to all decision making.

Our school is focused on ensuring students receive the very best learning opportunities to prepare them for their future.

We look forward to working with you to ensure your time at Whangaparaoa is full of learning, opportunity, fun and great times together.
