My name is Lisa Morresey and I am proud to be the principal of Mt Maunganui Intermediate School.
Mt Maunganui Intermediate is a school with a growing roll. As a school of this size, the principal and staff know their students. Curriculum, organisation and behaviour management is more responsive to meet student needs and students receive greater access to learning, sporting and cultural opportunities.
With a supportive Board of Trustees, a dedicated staff and an incredibly supportive school community we are continuing our journey as we strive for excellence in the education of emerging adolescents. As a staff we are committed to building upon our strengths, developing our skills, and deliberate acts of teaching to maximise student achievement ensuring curriculum delivery of the highest quality. As a Board we have continued extensive property work to refurbish amenities and our classrooms into twenty first century learning spaces and in 2016, ten new classrooms were built. This is an exciting time for Mount Maunganui Intermediate as we continue to strive for the summit of Mauao.
As a school community, I encourage you all to be involved in your child’s education. We develop strong partnerships with students and their families to enhance learning. I will always endeavour to be available for you, as the need arises. Please do not hesitate to make an appointment to meet with me.
We have high expectations for our students and their behaviour, and as the students move from primary to intermediate the expectations increase accordingly. You have come from excellent contributing schools and we are thoroughly committed to working closely with you to continue your journey into middle schooling. We look forward to another outstanding year.
Naau te rourou,
Naaku te rourou,
Kaa ora te iwi.
With your food basket,
And my food basket,
The tribe will thrive and flourish.
