I am privileged to be the Principal at Windy Ridge School, where we share a passion for supporting students to discover a love of learning through our learning through play/experiential learning approach.

Windy Ridge School is a decile 7 school in Glenfield on the North Shore of Auckland. We have a roll of around 250-300 students. We value strong home-school partnerships and celebrates close relations with our parents, whānau and multi-cultural community.

Through our Student Learner Profile, we support our students to be active learners who are confident, engaged and passionate and reflective goal setters. We aim for our students to leave us at the end of their time at our school with mana, proud of who they are; able to be collaborative, creative and critical, digitally fluent and engaged citizens.

At Windy Ridge our values of Atawhai – kindness, Manaakitanga – respect, Honore – Integrity and Manawaroa – Resilience shape how we learn and grow.

Our school is blessed with an amazing team of teachers, learning assistants, leaders and administrative staff who pride themselves on knowing every student in our school.
