PINEHILL SCHOOL

Principal's Welcome

Kia Ora, Talofa Lava, Anyong Haseyo, Namaste, Ni hao, Konichiwa, Kamusta, G’day, Dzień dobry and welcome!

I am proud to be the tumuaki of Pinehill School.  As principal, it is an absolute privilege to be the professional leader of such an amazing team who provides the best possible learning opportunities for our children. At Pinehill School, we are passionate about unlocking the potential of students and creating a culture where students, whanau and staff are a welcome part of our school community.

We offer a well-resourced school with dedicated, highly effective teachers including specialist teachers in ESOL and music.

We are committed to nurturing the whole child and honouring our full curriculum. Our sporting opportunities are varied, allowing students across all age groups to participate individually or in teams, school-wide and within our cluster.  As well as an inviting and well-resourced library, our classrooms contain up to date technology and digital devices. We have a strong Kapa Haka group, choirs and a variety of instrumental groups, as well as engaging and empowering learning environments for all our learners.

During my 29 years in education, I have taught in all year levels in primary schools on the North Shore and North Carolina, USA and remain excited by the ever-changing landscape that schools continue to navigate through.

I believe the partnership between home and school is a critical component of our childrens’ success.  We welcome and encourage parents, caregivers and whanau into our school and ask you to remain connected with us throughout your child’s educational journey.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Pinehill School.

Tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa,

Carla Veldman

Tue May 04 12:50pm

4th May 2021


Kia ora parents, family, whanau,


I am sure that you have noticed the dynamic new shade structure over our roadside netball court. It has been fascinating for us as a school, as well as the community to watch the process of the structure being built to its completion. Our structure has had the final check-off and is now complete! This area will provide shelter and shade throughout the whole year for sports teams practices, team huis, school sport, break time play, concerts and more.


We would like to invite you to attend a Blessing Ceremony this Thursday 6th May at 2pm. The ceremony will involve a karakia, Kapa Haka waiata, and an opening speech.  Students will be seated in their class groups under the structure.


We hope you and join us and look forward to seeing you there.


Ngā mihi nui,


Carla Veldman / Principal

The Resilience Project Parent Meeting TODAY at 3.15pm in the school hall. Everyone welcome.

Wed Mar 31 11:05am

The Resilience Project


As a school, we are delighted to be delivering The Resilience Project into our classes this year.


Through presentations, student curriculum, teacher resources and digital content, The Resilience Project’s Educational Programme supports mental health in the classroom, staffroom and family home.


We would like to invite you to a parent information meeting on Wednesday 31 March at 3.15 pm to find out more about this project.  The presentation will provide some background on the origins of the programme, an introduction to key resilience pillars and highlight the research, and ways for you to support what the children are learning in the classroom. 


Our Principal and Deputy Principals will be on hand to supervise your children while you meet in the hall to hear about the Resilience Project in classroom delivery and how to bring it in at home.


Please drop your child off with Carla Veldman, Rochelle Mabon and Sarah Ward at the library on your way to the hall.

Family Picnic TONIGHT – Great weather for the picnic 5 – 7pm. Look forward to seeing you there.
