Principal’s Message

Tena koutou katoa

Welcome to West End Te Kura Ō Mōrere.

My name is Hamish Hislop and I am proud to be the principal of our wonderful kura.

Our school is nestled in the western edge of New Plymouth's CBD, a city know for its natural beauty, cultural richness and vibrant community spirit.  This unique setting allows our students to draw inspiration from the surrounding environment, fostering a deep appreciation for the world around them.

We believe that a localised approach to education lays the foundation for well-rounded individuals who are prepared to navigate an ever-changing global landscape.  Our school curriculum is based on a sound foundation of literacy and numeracy woven through a focus on developing nga whenu kaha (Strong threads) of Kaitiakitanga, Ako, Whanaungatanga and Manākitanga.

We are committed to providing an educational environment that not only fosters academic achievement but also cultivates character, resilience, and a love for lifelong learning.

Our dedicated staff, supported by engaged parents and guardians, work collaboratively to create a vibrant, inclusive space where every student feels valued and inspired to reach their highest potential.

As you explore our website, I invite you to discover the myriad of opportunities and resources available to our students.  Whether you are a prospective student, a proud parent, or a curious visitor, we hope this virtual space gives you a glimpse into the vibrant tapestry of life at West End Te Kura Ō Mōrere.

Thank you for considering us as a partner in your child's educational journey.  We look forward to welcoming you into our community and to the exciting adventures that await.

Warm regards

Hamish Hislop - Principal West End Te Kura Ō Mōrere.
