I'm excited to be Principal of Waitaki Valley School. Our school has a lot to be proud of. We have a very supportive community, who work to ensure that we are well resourced, we have wonderful staff who work hard to ensure our programmes are best we can provide, meeting the variety of needs of our children.
We believe that educating children is a partnership. Our teachers actively involve parents and have open and regular contact with them. We welcome parent involvement in activities within our school.
Most importantly we have great tamariki who love learning and make the most of the opportunities that come their way.
Nau mai, Haere mai, welcome.
