Tumuaki / Principal

It is an absolute pleasure and privilege to serve our Papatoetoe community as Tumuaki of Papatoetoe South School. We pride ourselves on being a caring and inclusive school that focuses on encouraging students to achieve their potential academically, physically, socially and emotionally, whilst standing strong as who they are.

Our school whakatauki “Ko te Tamaiti te Pūtake o te Kaupapa / The Child the Heart of the Matter” highlights our intention to have our students at the centre of every decision we make. We have a strong commitment to nurturing and supporting our students to be the best learners, leaders and citizens they can be. We are a diverse school and work hard to offer a curriculum that celebrates our diversity, and honours whānau as the first teachers of our tamariki. We know we cannot do our job successfully without working together in partnership, and warmly welcome you to our school website and through our school doors.
