Principals Welcome

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Ahipara School Web Site. It is the belief of our learning community that we are all here, teachers, students and parents to enrich children’s learning. It is the close co-operation between parents and teachers that ensures quality educational experiences for our students. The schools core business is children's learning. We hold the belief that every child will be provided with opportunities to achieve success and develop their personal identity. Our learning community values the culture of this school, where high quality learning and success, are encouraged.

Our programmes are structured to cater for the needs of each individual, so that they may develop to their full potential. Our aim is to deliver to pupils, rich and wide-ranging programmes. From this curriculum children will acquire knowledge, learn skills and form attitudes, which will help their development, now and in the future.

Our goal is to provide a school environment where pupils are secure, happy, co-operative and industrious. To provide a learning environment where individual strengths, weaknesses and differences are catered for within the educational programmes. Each pupil is expected to do his or her best in whatever is undertaken.

With your support and encouragement we aim to maintain the highest possible teaching and learning standards and continue working to make our school an energetic and exciting place for your children. Your involvement in the life of our school yield many positive benefits and rewards for families and our school alike. When parents are engaged everyone benefits and our school and our community become an increasingly rich and positive place to teach, learn and grow.

Ahipara School is committed to delivering on its core business of ‘learning’ and is thrilled with the achievement gains to date. It is a place that is committed to building the necessary knowledge and competencies for students to thrive and succeed in learning and life.

We look forward to working with you as Ahipara School continues to evolve as a dynamic learning establishment.
