General Information

We are a future focused, learning community and we see the education of our students as a partnership between home and school.
We live by our school motto of: Creating Powerful Students through Quality Tradition Innovation and everything we do has these words in mind.
Our school has a friendly, open environment where parents are welcome and encouraged to be part of the learning process. We provide quality learning opportunities for each student and enjoy celebrating individual achievements. We acknowledge student effort in a positive and supportive way.
At Cambridge Primary School we value the uniqueness of individual students. To support this, we offer the following specialised programmes with specialist teachers: Visual Arts, Te Reo Maori, Science, Garden to Table, Outdoor Classroom, Te Ao Maori, Mandarin language and Kapa Haka.
Our staff are highly trained reflective professionals who balance their teaching skills with a high level of personal care and commitment to their students. Our focus for quality learning is linked to our philosophy that school should be safe, fun, enjoyable and challenging.
A hardworking and effective Board of Trustees and Parent Teacher Association support the staff and we value their willingness to be involved in school events.
It is a pleasure and an honour to be the Principal of this superb school.
