A message from our Principal:
Kia Ora and a very warm welcome is extended to all students, their families and other visitors to our school. We trust you will enjoy your time with us and we look forward to getting to know you and your family.
We take pride in developing and fostering our students’ talents to be successful in many aspects of their learning through our varied academic, sporting and cultural programmes. The foundation of these programmes is based on the characteristics of ‘The Matua Learner’
While we focus on Numeracy and Literacy we also believe in developing the whole child and ensuring creativity in our programmes. We are extremely proud of the ongoing achievements of our students.
It is a privilege to lead Matua School where empowerment, ownership and diversity show that people and their creativity are key ingredients in a great learning environment.
Our staff is highly qualified, motivated and committed to provide an enriched, interesting curriculum to meet our students’ needs and prepare them for future learning.
We are very well supported by our parents and diverse wider community, an active Parent Teacher Association and encouraging Board of Trustees.
We believe in strong, positive home-school partnerships where parents and teachers work together so our students reach their full potential and take full advantage of the learning opportunities provided at school. We value open communication – an essential component of these partnerships.
I believe the most important way to know if a school is the right place for your child to be educated, or for you to work in, is to spend time seeing, hearing and getting a feel for how the school operates. Please feel free to ring the office for a guided tour. We look forward to meeting you.
