Welcome to Fairhaven School

Whānau Ako – Learning Together

Diane Whyte-Principal

Principal's Welcome

Tēnā koutou katoa. Nau mai, haere mai ki Te Kura ō Fairhaven

Fairhaven Specialist School is welcoming and friendly; a place where all learners are valued, and their progress celebrated. We believe that through walking alongside our whānau and school community, our learner’s development and wellbeing is enhanced. This is reflected in our vision statement:

“Through whānau and families, staff and students working together, we know we can learn, achieve, and succeed as individuals and as a community.”

Our school values support a safe and inclusive learning environment, where everyone is encouraged to be the best that they can be. Fairhaven staff aspire to provide an engaging and personalised New Zealand Curriculum drawing on the experiences, strengths, and interests of our learners. We make school meaningful and fun.

I think I have the best job in the world!! Our students never cease to amaze me, and it is a real privilege to lead a committed staff team who are innovative and focussed on providing the very best learning opportunities for all.

Please do get in touch if you would like more information about our fabulous school.
