Mike FriisKia ora koutou!

We believe our school here in Te Puru, tucked away on the beautiful Coromandel, is the best school in the world!
Our students are full of energy, fun and great learning; our staff team is experienced, caring, conscientious and a great group of people with which to work and our setting is absolutely idyllic! 
In how many other schools can you enjoy playing on a beach, watch the occasional pod of orca go by and put the longline out? 

Our situation allows us to provide a wide, rich curriculum for our students and our hardworking staff design engaging learning opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom, taking full advantage of this.
We are so proud of our students and watch them move on to High School and, very often, into positions of leadership there with a deep sense of joy and satisfaction.

Our school motto is this:

“Whakatupuria nga ika  iti i roto i a matou wai marino”
"To let all young fish grow strong in our calm waters"

It is what we are about and we believe there is nothing more important.

If we can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to be in touch.

Nga mihi,

Mike Friis
