Welcome to Huia Range


Principal's Welcome

Nau mai, haere mai!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Huia Range School.

I have the privilege to be the incoming tumuaki/principal of Huia Range School in 2024.

I have been at Huia Range School since 2011 and in the Education sector for 26 years.

Our school provides many wonderful opportunities for students to learn and grow into successful members of society with the support of our wonderful teaching and support staff, whānau, and local community.

Our school’s vision “Creating a learning environment that is positive, respectful and supportive – an environment where students can STRIVE for Excellence” ensures our students are set up to become lifelong learners.

Our STRIVE values stand for the following:

Self Awareness (Aroha)
Thinking (Te Hurihuri)
Respect (Whakakoa)
Integrity (Te Ngakaupono)
Values (Tautokonga)
Excellence (Mahina)

are used as teaching tool to support this.

At Huia Range School we believe:

  • each child is an individual, they bring their own strengths, interests and experiences into our school.
  • education comes from a wide range of experiences.
  • the relationship between home & school is an integral part of learning.
  • engagement leads to powerful learning.
  • in promoting a school culture that supports wellbeing for all.
  • a high attendance rate is vital to belonging and developing good routines.
  • in learning, the process and product are both equally important.
  • reflection is an integral part of learning.
  • setting high expectations and high standards lead to great progress.

Our learning environment is built on positive relationships and supportive partnerships with everyone.

We warmly welcome you and your whānau into our great school culture environment!
