Principal’s Welcome

Kia Ora & Welcome

Huapai is known for its fruit. I have always believed you can judge a tree by its fruit. I’d like to believe, the fruit of what we desire to see in thinking, in learning and in character is evident in the quality and depth of our children. Schools’ should be places where children can grow, flourish and produce outcomes that reflect the effort our staff and children put into learning. I so believe in the opportunities, expectations and gifts a school can endower on our children. I want to see our children as strong, confident and articulate learners.

At Huapai District School we talk of “seeds of greatness” (Cs of greatness). These are the qualities we desire to see evident in our children. These include collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, citizenship, communication and character.

I am excited and really positive of what we have in front of us: The hopes and dreams we all carry and the expectation that within our school these dreams and hopes will come to fruition.

I look forward to sharing some of our vision with you.

John Petrie
