Principal's Welcome

Kia ora

Nau mai, haere mai ki tenei kura tuatahi o Waiheke.

Thank you for your interest in our lovely little school.

I have the enormous privilege of serving as the principal of Waiheke Primary School, where I get to work alongside a group of passionate and skilled educators, and see our awesome tamariki take risks, achieve, learn and thrive.

Nestled in an idyllic valley, surrounded by beautiful green hills in the heart of Waiheke Island, our modern and well-resourced school is the ideal place for tamariki to learn.

At Waiheke Primary, we value the growth of the whole child, focussing on the development of their, emotional, physical, academic, artistic and social wellbeing.

Our school’s positive and community-minded culture is what sets us apart and makes us special. It is difficult to put into words the wairua that exists in our school, but we are sure that you’ll feel it too.
