Our Principal

Kia ora koutou,

My name is Jenny Mockford and I am privileged to be the principal of Te Tipua School. I am very proud of our school and of the students who make it a great place to be.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Te Tipua School website. I proudly lead a team of passionate, innovative educators and an efficient school support team of an office manager, teacher aides and care taking staff.

We encourage our students to be active and motivated about their learning. Our school values are Honesty, Respectfulness, Responsibility and kindness, which is all a part of what we do in our learning environment here at school. As a school we regularly meet to celebrate effort, success and achievement.

We have a focus on academic progress and achievement for every student, ensuring that all students learn and achieve to their potential. We aim for students to be increasingly aware of where they are with their learning and their next steps. These are skills that are essential to enable our students to become lifelong learners who are positive about their future.

We believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We welcome and encourage parents and caregivers into our school. If you would like to visit and have a look around please contact the office to make an appointment. I welcome the opportunity to meet with all parents, both current and prospective to discuss our school and your children’s learning needs.
