Principal’s Message

Tēnā rā koutou katoa,


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!


Whaea Barbara Hetaraka
