Principal's Welcome

Kia ora koutou, 

This place of ours, is a very special place as we are connected to this beautiful kura that sits in the heart of the North Shore. We feel fortunate that we can share this school and this place with our community. Your time at Takapuna Primary will be filled with happiness, new learning, great challenges and awesome memories. The values we uphold at our school are represented in our way of being along with our vision: Proud to be different, Proud to make a difference. We strive to be kind to each other, we respect that each one of us have our own stories to tell and we are proud of who we are. Most importantly we celebrate that we are all individuals who learn and grow differently. Each one of us adds value to our Takapuna Primary school village, with our culture, our history, our strengths and our talents. In our place, you will thrive. 

Embedded in our belief and expressed in our whakatauki – Mā te pā ka taea te whakatipu te tamaiti –  It takes a village to raise a child, we welcome you to our village, where we will achieve greatness together.
