A message from our Principal

Kia ora koutou,

I would like to thank every member of Stanley Avenue School for a great year. I am proud of what you have achieved academically, socially, culturally, and on the sporting front. 2021 has been another Covid affected year, but I praise your attitude and resilience and the way you have coped with setbacks. Well done to all prize winners and certificate recipients for your outstanding efforts. Be proud of your achievements, you have thoroughly deserved your accolades.

Just as importantly the non-recipients of awards or certificates can be equally as proud because when reading your reports I could see a huge amount of value-added in terms of your learning and growth in all areas. Keep striving to succeed.

To the Stanley Avenue parents, whānau and community, thank you for your continued support around the school whether it be assisting with class trips, sporting events, parent help or just by being an advocate of the school. A lot of what happens at Stanley Ave could not happen without you. Thank you.

To our Board of Trustees, your direction, support, and passion for all things Stanley Ave is greatly appreciated.

Lastly, my wonderful staff, thanks for your amazing effort this year. I am proud of what we are achieving. Thank you for your mahi and efforts in leaving no stone unturned for our learners. You all have big hearts and push each other in terms of future improvement. I love the manaakitanga, support, and camaraderie we value, model, and display daily.

To the Stanley Ave Whānau, have a Merry Christmas and a fantastic, well-deserved holiday period. Bring on 2022!

As always I am proud and privileged to be your Principal.

Year 7 and 8 Immunisations

An email has been sent out notifying all Year 7/8 parents, that school vaccinations for Boostrix and the 2nd dose for HPV are unable to be completed this year, as the Public Health Nurse workforce are still supporting the Ministry of health Covid screening and vaccination programme.

Please contact your child's doctor to arrange for these to be completed.

They are free and important to your child's future health.
