A Message From The Principal

Welcome to Fairhaven School.

Our school philosophy hinges on two key parts; Dream, Strive, Achieve, and Kotahitanga.

The first serves to inspire pupils, staff and whanau to aim for excellence. The second serves to guide how we relate to others – to be united. Both are more than words, they intertwine through all we do. Ideals we value, and which are the foundation of who we are. We believe education is more than academic achievement, it is also social and emotional development.

We want pupils and families to feel welcome, valued and challenged. Challenged to do and be their best.
Challenged to work as a team and develop as individuals.

We hope you will not only enjoy your time at Fairhaven, but also feel an integral part of our school.

Paul Hunt
School Principal
