It is an absolute pleasure to be the Principal of Anchorage Park School.
I have been in education for over 30 years and it is a privilege to do what I do on a daily basis.
Anchorage Park School is a very special place with an amazing sense of community. It is rare these days to have such a tight knit community; where our students come to school to learn, have fun doing it and also have a true sense of well-being. It is where we know everyone’s name with a ‘small country school in the city’ feel - what a great way to describe our school!
I have a passion for inclusion and strongly believe in empowering others so that all students and whānau feel safe and have a sense of belonging. I also believe that a genuine partnership needs to exist between school and whānau so we are all working together which in turn, enhances learning.
We have a core set of values at Anchorage Park School - unity, courage and integrity. We endeavour to instill these values in our students so they can thrive as members of our community.
