Our Staff

Who We Are

Our team is a highly experienced and enthusiastic group of teachers and office staff.

BUT beyond the quality of teaching, what characterises our school is the openness and friendliness between students and teachers. Our ‘open door’ policy means that we are happy to talk with you at any time and to help you with any advice you may need.

Most of our staff also speak a second language so understand the difficulties in learning another language.

Our Office Manager will help you with opening bank accounts, finding sports clubs, organising your ID cards and any other queries you may have about living in Tauranga.


Our Promise

  • we will be more than a teacher – we will help you to discover and share with you the Kiwi way of life
  • we will give you individualised, personalised attention
  • we will write a quarterly report for you which will then be discussed between you and the teacher
  • we will keep in contact with you as you move up through the levels
  • we will have different teachers for the morning and afternoon classes so that you have the opportunity to listen to and to understand different people.
  • we will take you out on excursions or involve you in some activity outside the school environment.
