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
