Our People

All our whānau teachers have a group of learners they oversee, including whānau contact, learner assessments and learner well being. Learners also can be taught by different whanau teachers within their learning space dependent on the National Curriculum Level they are working at or the type of learning they are involved in. Please take a look at our fantastic whānau teachers.

Establishment Board of Trustees

The Establishment Board of Trustees (E BoT) was appointed by Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Education, Wellington late in 2018. (Reference to  Section 98 (1) of the Education Act 1989.) Our first meeting took place in late March 2019. We are a group of experienced trustees having worked in schools and or on boards for a number of years. The development of a new school in Belmont, Pukekohe is an exciting time for the community.
