Our Staff

Our staff consists of a leadership team,  teachers,  administration team, caretaker and teacher aides.  The school operates in two syndicates. The Junior syndicate consists of the Pikiake Team (Yr0-1) and the Tuputupu Team (Yr2-3) while the Senior syndicate is the Whanake Team (Yr4-5) and the Panuku Team (Yr6).

All our teaching and learning practices are guided by our school vision of "growing active learners who make a positive difference." All staff members are integral in supporting our learners to achieve a shared vision. ​
