Principal's Welcome

Kia ora te whanau,

I am delighted to introduce you to South Makirikiri School, located 7kms to the West of Marton. We
are a rural, with 7 classrooms catering for Y1-8 students. Welcome to South Makirikiri School.

Our learning environment fosters a sense of belonging, values learning and expects success. We are
resourced to provide digitally connected, comfortable, modern learning spaces. We all have a passion
for creating an environment that brings the learning alive for every child that comes through our
gates. We enjoy seeing learning happening in a variety of spaces and particularly out in the outdoor
environment.

Our school has amazing learning spaces and an engaging learning environment that
enables students to explore and create in a wide range of curriculum areas.
As a school we strive to excel beyond expectation in all areas and students are encouraged to give
everything a go. We want our young people to leave our school well equipped with all the
competencies and qualities to participate and contribute in their secondary education.

Our community
plays an active role in every aspect of life at South Makirikiri School and we enjoy building
relationships with all learners and their whanau.

Nga mihi nui kia koutou.
