It is an honour to lead our school as Principal and it is a role I take seriously as we focus on always putting our children at the centre of learning here at Rhode Street School.
I have a very supportive team alongside me to ensure we are continuously improving on how we not only raise, but accelerate student progress and achievement where needed.
Our Board of Trustees are the leaders of learning at Rhode Street. They ensure our teachers are supported and resourced to carry out their effective teaching duties to enable our students to be successful learners.
Our teachers and support staff work smart and efficiently to support our student voice and their learning. They collaborate with each other to share best practice and strengthen their skills across the school and community.
Our whanau are an important component of our team. They support the learning at school and in the home by building and maintaining positive relationships with our teachers and students.
Our students are the most important members of our team. They share their learning, their challenges and their opportunities with all of us.
Together we are a strong whanau who respect each other and look after each other.
