A note from the PRINCIPAL
Shirley Primary is a fabulous, multi-cultural school where we encourage all of our S*T*A*R learners to reach for the stars, whaia te iti kahurangi! We do this by Striving for excellence, Taking responsibility, Actively collaborating and showing Respect.
We have a dedicated and talented staff, supportive and involved community and caring, hardworking students. I have worked at Shirley Primary for the past 10 years as Deputy Principal and I am incredibly privileged to have been promoted to Principal this year. Our school has experienced rapid roll growth in recent years and we expect to finish 2015 with a roll close to 400. I look forward to leading our school through its next stages of development as we explore more collaborative, future focussed learning programmes alongside our extensive property refurbishment.
Our school wide focus for this year is "Change"
In term 1 we focussed on current and future changes within our school and introduced our new school values.
In term 2, we are looking at changes in the material world. We are becoming scientists by gathering and interpreting data using our observational skills.
In term 3, we will look at changes in techology and in term 4 we will delve into the past to explore changes across history. This includes each class visiting Ferrymead Historic Park travelling by bus with Good Time Tours.
