Welcome

Kia ora, talofa lava, kia orana, malo lelei, bula vinaka, nameste, fakaalofa lahi atu, malo ni, fakatalofa atu, gidday, hello!

Welcome to Nga Iwi School!

I joined this wonderful school community as Principal at the beginning of term 4 2014. Our children are stunning learners and our staff are a dedicated team, who care about our learners and their bright future ahead!

In 1972, following local iwi collaboration, the school opened with the name Nga Iwi, meaning  "People of the land be one".  NIS has a rich history.  Today, our diversity continues to provide rich opportunities for learning and connecting with the community we represent.  

We are united with a common purpose in achieving excellence in education for all our learners and staff. We have a very supportive Board of Trustees (BOT) who emphasise and maintain a positive focus on our children's learning.  We actively include space (and fun!) for our preschoolers and parents.  

Please pop in and see me or share your feedback with us, as we continue to develop our website.

We look forward to sharing with you the excellent achievements of our children, staff and community!

Fa'afetai tele lava.  Have a great day.
