Principal’s Korero

Tēnā koutou, tenei te mihi atu ki a koutou katoa. Nau mai, haere mai, ki te kura nei. Greetings and a very warm welcome to Dargaville Primary School. My name is Curtis Gaylor and I am the principal of this fantastic school.

It is a tremendous privilege to lead such a wonderful school with fantastic tamariki, talented and hardworking staff and a very supportive community.

Children are at the heart of everything we do at Dargaville Primary School.

We provide high-quality teaching and learning programmes that are built on strong foundations in numeracy and literacy as well as offering a broad range of opportunities for our tamariki to experience and excel in sporting, cultural and artistic endeavours. We encourage our tamariki to take risks, to go out of their comfort zones and to embrace new experiences.

We regularly celebrate effort, success and achievement. We also make sure that our children’s wellbeing is a priority to ensure that all needs are met within a physically safe and emotionally secure environment. Dargaville Primary School is a place where everyone is important and respected for who they are.

We believe that education is a partnership between home and school and welcome and encourage parents and caregivers into our kura. I look forward to meeting you and showing you around our very special school.
