Dear Ararimu School Community and Future Parents,
I trust this message finds you in high spirits as we embark on another year of learning, growth, and achievement at Ararimu School. As the Principal of this wonderful institution, it is my privilege to welcome you all to an exciting academic journey that is grounded in our core values and enriched by our remarkable community.
At Ararimu School, we proudly offer a wide range of academic and sporting activities, ensuring that every student can explore their interests and talents. From the classroom to the sports field, we are dedicated to providing an environment where our students can flourish.
Our passionate and dedicated staff members are at the heart of this endeavour. Their commitment to nurturing young minds and fostering a love for learning is truly inspiring. Rest assured that your child will be guided and supported by educators who are not only knowledgeable but also deeply invested in their academic and personal development.
We are fortunate to have a strong Board of Trustees and Parent Teacher Association (PTA) that play a pivotal role in shaping the direction of our school. Their unwavering support and active involvement in school activities are instrumental in creating a vibrant and dynamic learning community.
At Ararimu School, we embrace and uphold our RILEY values: Respect, Integrity, Leadership, and Excellence. These values are the foundation of everything we do. They guide our interactions, decisions, and aspirations. Allow me to elaborate on how each of these values relates to our journey at Ararimu School:
Respect: It is through mutual respect that we create an inclusive and harmonious learning environment where everyone can thrive.
Integrity: Integrity is the cornerstone of our school's culture. We are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in all our actions, ensuring that our students are not only academically competent but also morally grounded.
Leadership: I see my role as Principal as one of leadership, but more importantly, as a facilitator of leadership in our students. We aim to empower our students to become confident leaders who make a positive impact in our school and beyond.
Excellence: Excellence is our aspiration in all aspects of education. Whether it's academic achievements, sports, or personal growth, we strive for excellence, encouraging our students to reach their full potential.
A child's journey at Ararimu School is a shared one. It is defined by our collective commitment to these values and our shared vision of providing a top-tier education that prepares our students for future success.
As we embark on a learning journey, I invite each one of you to join hands with us, as together, we nurture and guide the young minds of Ararimu School. Our pursuit of knowledge, our celebration of talents, and our dedication to our RILEY values will undoubtedly lead to another year of outstanding achievements and personal growth.
Thank you for entrusting us with the education and well-being of your children. I look forward to working closely with all of you as we shape a bright future for our students.
