The School Bus is one of the safest ways to travel.

Please see the below link for a copy of Fuller’s latest School Bus information booklet, routes, timetables and safety tips. The bus now once again goes to Orapiu. We hope that this booklet will help you with pick up and drop off times and perhaps encourage more children to travel using a school bus.

WHS Students achieving high in science

Aiya Kondo and Liam Campbell have been studying STEM subjects at WHS . Their diligence and work ethic led to their being chosen for the two week Rotary National Science and Technology live-in Forum in Auckland. In January, along with 168 students from around the country, they stayed in University dormitories and experienced study in STEM through lectures, workshops and field trips. During the modules, Aiya and Liam were able to talk to current university students.

Seeing the projects that these students were working on strengthened Liam’s interest in engineering. “Not only did the forum show me pathways that I had never considered before, it allowed me to start thinking about which aspects interested me most.” For Aiya, Dr Michelle Dickinson was a very memorable and inspiring speaker, challenging the traditional mindset around STEM and providing a unique insight into the academic world. “I entered the Forum expecting to learn practical skills in STEM subjects. What I didn’t expect was to learn so many valuable life lessons which I will carry with me forever. “

Both students gave an excellent presentation to the Waiheke Rotary Club along with the principal, Mr Cameron Flude, and their supporting teacher HOF Science Katherine Cole.

Kia ora,

We are delighted to share the news of a significant milestone in the growth and development of Waiheke High School. After an extensive and rigorous search, we are thrilled to announce the appointment of Mr. Cameron Flude as our new principal/tumuaki.

In response to the dynamic educational landscape and with the goal of securing the best leadership for our school, the Board of Trustees moved swiftly to advertise the principal role at a time when talented individuals actively seek new opportunities.

Our commitment to a thorough and robust selection process was unwavering. We undertook a series of interviews that not only involved the Board but also included valuable input from our dedicated staff and representatives from local iwi consultation groups.

This collaborative effort ensured that diverse perspectives were considered in the decision-making process. We are proud to report that the Board, staff, and iwi were in complete alignment when it came time to select the preferred candidate.

Mr. Flude’s vision, passion for education, and commitment to fostering a positive and inclusive learning environment resonated strongly with all stakeholders. With great excitement and anticipation, we look forward to welcoming Mr. Flude as the newest member of the Waiheke High School whanau.

His experience and innovative approach to education align seamlessly with our school’s values and aspirations. We are confident that, under his leadership, Waiheke High School will continue to flourish and thrive.

Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Cameron. We believe that his leadership will contribute significantly to the continued success and growth of our school.

Ngā mihi nui,
James Petronelli
