Principal's Message

Kia ora koutou, welcome to Weston School.

We are very proud of our school, our students and the programmes that we offer. Being a full primary we enjoy a real family atmosphere, and utilise the skills of our senior students to support our junior students as and when we can.

We take pride in working closely with whanau to support our learners, and you can be sure that teachers keep the lines of communication open. We also encourage you as parents, to make contact with teachers, as you wish. This might be with a query or question - or it might just be to touch base.

We offer a wide variety of programmes - from academic, sporting and cultural opportunities - in both during and after school programmes. Our children take up these opportunities with much enthusiasm and as a result we have a presence in local cultural and sporting competitions.

We are now underway as an Enviroschool and are very proud of the rapid developments that are happening with this. As well as our extensive garden and planting programmes, as a school we are looking at how we can reduce our waste. We also encourage children and families to reduce amounts of gladwrap, plastic and foil wrappers.

Taking up the principalship of Weston School at the beginning of June 2019, means that I am very new to the school, but I'm also very excited about what our school offers and the developments ahead.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me directly, or one of my welcoming staff.

We hope that you are as excited about our school, as we are.
