Our People

He aha te mea nui o te ao.
He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.

What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people, it is people, it is people.

We believe that people, and the strong relationships of trust that exist between them, are what makes a school and its students successful. Our school is supported by a variety of groups of people and we are proud to be part of such a thriving community. 

We turned 150 years old in 2020!
