Principal

Principal's goal


“As a Principal, my goal is to see every teacher regarding each child they work with or interact with as their own child.  We are ‘parents in place’.  

That means we are the mum and the dad - for every child at our school.”


Nau mae, haere mai. 

Welcome to our new Western Heights website. 


We are passionate about what we do - providing a world-class, future-focused education for each of the children in our care.


We seek to nurture our children in a Whanau-based learning approach, where the emphasis is on the relationship between teacher and learner, and the focus is on educating the whole child in partnership with our parents and our wider community.


We expect our children to be caring, to nurture each other and their environment, and to make a contribution to their school and/or wider community every year.


Our doors are open, so don't be a stranger! Come and see for yourself what a great family we have at WHS. 


Friday Full-school Assembly - is a great place to start. See you just at 9:45 am for a time of celebration, challenge, communication and coming-together as a family.
