Nau Mai Haere Mai, Welcome!
Kia ora, talofa lava, bonjour, hello. I am the principal at Richmond Road School – Te Kura o Ritimana. I am thrilled to be leading a school with such a long history and reputation for being a community focused school that focuses on providing tamariki with opportunities to discover the joy of learning through their/a heritage language.
As a school leader I am mindful that our approach to learning needs to be future focused, but also it must recognize where we have come from. We now know so much more in terms of how students’ best learn and what comprises effective teaching. Learning needs to be motivating, engaging and provide sufficient challenge for all of our learners. It is also important to me that our students feel happy and safe at school and we provide a nurturing environment.
Te Kura o Ritimana has a lively and active wider school community, focused on making our great school greater.
Our school vision is to develop tamariki who are culturally intelligent life-long learners, who strive for excellence and contribute to their communities. Our ‘values’ encourage children to engage with learning, to be actively involved in community, to be leaders, to have an understanding of their identity and that of others and to creative in their response to problem solving.
Respect for self, others and the environment, togetherness and inclusiveness, compassion and empathy, bravery and resilience, educational achievement
