We have become known for our continued record of high achievement. Behind this success is a clear and an incredibly strong community of parents, teachers and students.
I am proud to lead a school that truly embraces our vision: “We dream, we inspire, we create, we empower.”
Our children achieve through rich and engaging learning experiences as we prepare them to be well-rounded learners and leaders of the future. This is supported by many opportunities within and beyond the curriculum including education outside the classroom, school sport, the school band programme, the choir, dance groups, Kapa Haka and the hotly contested house challenge system. While ‘The Kohimarama Way’ values programme supports our desire to develop positive habits and character in our children.
Our staff are empowered to be educational leaders through collegial support and sharing and their own rich professional learning experiences, as we identify and respond to the developing needs of our 21st century learners.
Our school parents are informed and engaged in the life of the school through the weekly school newsletter, Parent Teacher Association, school events, regular parent helper roles and participation in information evenings and student achievement discussions. Kohimarama School parents continue to give generously through school donations and fundraising to enable the school to enhance teaching and learning facilities and resources.
We welcome the participation and contribution of our wider community which enhances many learning opportunities and sees our school facilities well utilized with many sporting and cultural activities available to children after school.
Welcome to Kohimarama School!
Paul Engles, Principal
