It is my pleasure to be the leader of learning at such a fantastic school. I know all principals say this, but our students truly are special! The staff are a great mix of professionals, each of whom are valued for the strengths they bring to our school and their ability to provide the best for learners in our care. We are lucky enough to have an involved and supportive community around us, some of whom have connections to our school that go back generations. Our goal is to provide a future focussed environment where learners are striving towards their own level of personal excellence.

At Kaukapakapa School our core values of Respect - Whakaute, Kindness - Atawhai, Effort - Whakapau kaha, Excellence - Tutuki, and Honesty - Tūturu, are modelled and explored as aspects of everyday learning and school life through high expectations, multiple opportunities, and positive relationships with other children, teachers, families, whanau, iwi, community, and in our partnership with the Kahui Ako o Kaipara Community of Learning.

At Kaukapakapa School we are extremely proud of what our students achieve, and the confident, collaborative and connected learners and citizens they become. Truly special!
