The Board's Chairperson

Welcome and greetings to you all.

Our students, parents, staff and trustees welcome you to join our school and community, we trust your time with us will be rewarding and enjoyable.

Havelock School is embarking on some exciting changes, with a recent change of principal, some new staff and trustees all fresh and keen to build our classrooms and campus into a dynamic and rewarding environment for our tamariki to flourish and grow. 

We have recently upgraded our main classroom block, giving our children improved bathroom and cloakroom facilities and updated learning spaces, including withdrawal spaces to enhance their independent learning skills.

Also, the development of our new play-ground, which is designed to link us to surrounding industries, is coming to an end, and all this has been made possible by the endless support, commitment and efforts of parents and the surrounding community.

We endeavour to support all our students to achieve their best, and believe that a strong partnership between teachers, parents and community (triangular learning) is essential to reaching this goal.

We trust that you will be actively involved, in helping us to shape Havelock School to best serve our children and prepare them for the increasingly complex world that will meet them beyond our doors.

Please let me welcome you again, to join us in moulding these strong young minds into adults with the confidence to face change, curiosity and respect to appreciate their past, and the compassion and resilience to thrive in the diverse future that awaits them.
