AT PANAMA ROAD SCHOOL, WE LOVE LEARNING, WE MAKE GOOD CHOICES, AND WE CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER
Kia Ora, Talofa Lava, Malo e Lelei and Welcome to Panama Road School! We have a wonderfully diverse community and are blessed with the talents of our great students, friendly whānau and wonderful staff. We have a very hardworking Board who support us in all that we do. It warms my heart every day to come to school and be greeted by the friendly, smiling faces of our children. I know we all want our children to be the best learners they can be.
We expect everyone at Panama Road School to be Positive, Responsible and Safe Learners. We empower everyone to take their Panama PRIDE with them wherever they may go. We value learning together so we can all feel successful every day.
Our vision is: “Learning Together, Success Every Day”
Our school is a great little school. We are situated on an isthmus between Otāhuhu and Mount Wellington. We are like a family at school. We know each other and support one another.
We know that working with whānau means our children will get the most out of the learning opportunities we can provide.
We invite you to look around our website or come in and look around our school. if you want to know anything or have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask your child’s teacher or pop in to see me or Carol Leota our lovely Deputy Principal.
