Principal's Message

We believe that the education of our students is a three-way partnership between the students, their parents/whanau and the school. Wilford School is where students will be challenged, motivated to learn, receive quality teaching and experience a range of learning opportunities. Parents, whanau and the community support children's learning to the best of their abilities. Students are engaged and have a love of learning.

Neil Sargisson, School Principal

We aim to provide our children with a variety of shaded options outside in the play ground. Our skin protection strategies are in place to teach our students how to make good choices and be sun smart; both by teaching them safe sun practices and having our staff perform as good sun smart role models.

Nga Rangatahi (Modern Youth)
Our exciting new modern learning environment for Year 7 and Year 8 students has started with its foundation pupils.  The classroom is designed for flexible teaching and learning; being an open space with withdrawal rooms and movable furniture.  The teaching philosophy will have a strong digital learning focus with the school providing one iPad, laptop or Note Pad per student.  There will be an opportunity for our community to come and look at this new classroom later in the year. 
Open afternoon planned for 26 June.  More details to follow.
