Principal's Welcome

Kia ora, Mālō e lelei, Talofa lava, Kia orana, Kamusta, Ayubowan, Vannakkam, 

I’m delighted to have joined TPS as your Principal at the start of 2021.  

I’ve been in the education field for 34+ years, in and out of Auckland, across all Primary School levels, in a range of diverse settings.  I’ve been a Principal of three schools.

We welcome your interest in our fabulous School – close to the beautiful Maungarei and on the shore of the stunning te wai o Taiki (Tāmaki river).  We’re a committed, caring staff and Board, focused on quality relationships and quality teaching/learning for our tamariki.  Anga whakamua – we continue to mahi forwards for our tamariki and for our new School building developments.

Nau mai, haere mai parents and whānau!

Mauri ora,

Dr. Deanna Johnston
