Kia ora Whanau. Ka nui te mihi ki a koutou - greetings to you all.
Welcome to Geraldine Primary School. My name is Andrew Leverton and I am proud to be the Principal of our school.
As Principal of GPS it is a privilege to be leading an amazing team of staff who work in partnership with our community to ensure our students receive the best education possible. Our school focuses on meeting the unique needs of each student. We provide high quality teaching and learning programmes and numerous opportunities for students to experience and excel in academic, sporting, cultural and leadership activities.
We encourage our students to be active and motivated about their learning. Our School Values are Caring, Achieving, Respectful and Responsible and these are embedded in our interactions with each other. As a school we regularly meet to celebrate effort, success and achievement. Pastoral care is also a priority to enable the needs of all students are met within a safe and secure environment.
We have a focus on academic achievement for every student, ensuring that all students learn and achieve to their potential. We aim for students to be increasingly aware of where they are with their learning and their next steps. These are skills that are essential to enable our students to become lifelong learners who are positive about their future.
Our School Vision "Desire to Learn, Aspire to Achieve" promotes the importance that we place on learning, achievement and doing one's best across a range of areas.
We believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We welcome and encourage parents and caregivers into our school. If you would like to visit and have a look around please contact the office to make an appointment. I welcome the opportunity to meet with all parents, both current and prospective to discuss our school.
Kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui - be strong, be bold, be steadfast.
Andrew Leverton | Principal
