Welcome to


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
