Principal's Welcome

Kia Ora, Mālō e lelei, Talofa lava, Kia Orāna, 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 33+ 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 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 towards our School new build developments.

I’m super keen to meet and get to know you.  See you soon!

Mauri ora,

Dr. Deanna Johnston
