PRINCIPAL'S WELCOME

From the Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to our College! We are proud to be centered in the community and working to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world, helping to build wonderful young people that Edgecumbe can be proud of.

These are exciting times for the College with a devoted and involved Board and a dedicated professional staff who go the extra mile to build strong, positive relationships with their students, working in partnership with them to aim high and reach their potential.

An extensive building project has started and we will see major reconstruction of the whole school in 2022.

We are working alongside family and whanau to develop young people who:

*are life-long learners

*set goals and follow their passions to successes

*are digitally connected

*have the knowledge, skills and attitudes to succeed in the 21st Century

I believe that strong, positive relationships with our students are paramount in providing a learning environment that allows them to express themselves, be immersed in their culture and grow strong in an authentic learning environment that meets their individual needs.

At Edgecumbe College our aim to build young people of integrity who contribute positively in our communities.

Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou ka ora ai te iwi – with your food basket and my food basket the people will thrive,

Mike Jackson, Principal
