Principal's Welcome

Kia ora koutou
A very warm welcome to Pukekohe High School.

Our school serves the community of Pukekohe on the southern edges of Auckland. We are at an exciting stage in our one-hundred-year history, with an expanding student roll and improved facilities and opportunities for our students.

We aim to provide a holistic education for our learners with a strong emphasis on academic qualifications, co-curricular experiences, student leadership and pastoral care. We have high expectations for our young people in terms of their effort, behaviour and attendance. Providing learning experiences that will enable all our students to develop the skills, attributes and qualifications that they will need in life beyond school, is at the heart of our work. We place an emphasis on choice throughout our curriculum to meet the needs of our diverse student body.

Our Pukekohe High School Values of Manaakitanga, Kotahitanga, Puumautanga and Araahitanga are critical in preparing our students for life in 21st century New Zealand and the wider world. Our five Houses and horizontal form structure (Whaanau Roopuu) mean that our learners are known and cared for as individuals. The school’s team of Deans, Counsellors, Nurses and Careers staff work closely together to support all our young people. Encouraging resilience and wellbeing are vital.

Involvement in sport, from Athletics to Waka Ama, is a strength of our school and is key to developing a sense of enjoyment as well as physical and mental wellbeing. A large number of our students successfully participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award. Music has long been a notable feature of our school and opportunities in Drama and in Dance are increasing. This is a taste of the many opportunities that our learners enjoy.

We invite you to explore our website and official social media pages to learn more about our school. We are proud of what our school has to offer and look forward to welcoming you to Pukekohe High School.
