Our Principal

Greetings from the Principal

Kia ora koutou,
My name is Wendy Kitto and I am privileged to be the principal of East Gore School. I am very proud of East Gore School and of the students who make it a great place to be.
As principal of East Gore School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the East Gore School website. I proudly lead a team of passionate, innovative educators and an efficient school support team of an office manager, teacher aides and caretaking staff.
We encourage our students to be active and motivated about their learning. Our school values are Honesty, Respectfulness and Responsibility and these are embedded in our interactions with each other.
As a school, we regularly meet to celebrate effort, success and achievement. Pastoral care is also a priority to enable the needs of all students to be met within a safe and secure environment.
We have a focus on academic achievement for every student, ensuring that all students learn and achieve their potential. We aim for students to be increasingly aware of where they are with their learning and their next steps. These are skills that are essential to enable our students to become lifelong learners who are positive about their future.
We believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We welcome and encourage parents and caregivers into our school. If you would like to visit and have a look around please contact the office to make an appointment. I welcome the opportunity to meet with all parents, both current and prospective to discuss our school.
Ngā mihi
