Principal's Message

He mihi mahana ki a koutou i tēnei wā o te tau nei. Warm greetings to you all. Firstly, thank you all for my warm welcome in the powhiri for my whānau and I in week 1. It was a great show of solidarity in our community and I look forward to working with you and leading our kura to the next level for Thames South School. Our year has started with some action packed learning opportunities for our students, our focus has been working on encouraging positive working relationships amongst students and staff as well as whānau. There are some exciting initiatives in the pipeline for us to grow and make sound progress. Our waka will make even more progress with your help too. Please feel free to come and see how you can get on board the waka and help make a positive impact for our kura community.


Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi!


With your basket, and my basket, our people will thrive!

Introducing our new mural by Matua Rick Fisher


Our 4 manu represent the hapū our kura is split into for all of our whole school activities and challenges. All manu are on the lookout and hunt for kai representing a hunger for education and learning. The brown koru represents Tānemahuta and the 3 baskets of knowledge. The blue koru represents our connection to Tikapa and its significance to our place. The white lines throughout represent the waves in learning and life. The green koru represents our connection to our maunga and the white lines throughout depict our awa that surround us. The Unaunahi designs near the top and bottom represent the significance of Ngāti Maru; our Mana Whenua. The harakeke speaks to the natural resources at the heart of learning and the kowhai tree speaks of the hauora of our ngahere.

Ngā mihi mahana ki a Matua Rick.
