Tena koutou katoa,
I feel very fortunate to be the Principal of Tākaka Primary School here in the beautiful Golden Bay. I warmly welcome you to our vibrant place of learning, where we place children and their learning front and centre.
Our school values and qualities guide the way we engage in learning and play at Tākaka Primary School. Our values and qualities are infused into all aspects of our school learning community. Both our values and qualities are future focused, ensuring we are providing our next generation with the skills and qualities they are going to need for THEIR future. We strive to develop 'Connected, collaborative lifelong learners'.
I have a real passion for developing strong foundations in Literacy and Mathematics and growing teacher capability to enhance the learning outcomes we achieve for our tamariki. I also enjoy collaborating with others to build curriculum that connects to our local area, engaging tamariki in rich learning, out in their natural environment.
We are fortunate to have such dedicated, passionate and motivated staff members that are committed to ensuring that every child achieves to their full potential. I am very proud of our school and all it has to offer for its akonga / learners. I invite you to come and see for yourself.
