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

What do you think of ERO’s parent booklets?

The Education Review Office (ERO) publishes a series of five booklets for parents and caregivers. We have a copy of these booklets in our school office.

We want to find out how useful the information is to parents, how the booklets can be improved, and if parents would prefer to receive the information in a different way.  

We’re starting with a survey of How is my child doing? To take part in the survey go to www.ero.govt.nz – Featured Publications. The survey runs until the end of September and only takes a few minutes to complete.

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.
