Tena Koutou and welcome to the Mayfair School website.
I am very privileged to be principal of Mayfair School in the heart of Hastings. We have amazing students, the best staff, a wonderful community and a future focused Board of Trustees. I moved to Mayfair at the start of Term 4, 2014 after previously being principal of Sherwood School in Central Hawkes Bay and principal of Frasertown School in Wairoa. Taking up a new position has been refreshing with different challenges.
Our school is building on 64 years of tradition and rising to the top in 2015. We are fortunate that the school has small classes, of between 20 and 25 students, that are appealing to parents and our community of learners. The roll generally sits at 250 and 300 students, which gives the school 9 - 11 classes. We are a year 0-6 primary school ranging in age from 5 to 10 years of age. Mayfair is an exciting place to be part of and we emphasise FUN while LEARNING! We also expect positive attitudes and excellent behaviour.
Our school curriculum links to our charter and both work to set the vision, principals, values and expectations of our school and community.
We have spaces left for 2015; If you’re future focused in preparing your child for the future then Mayfair is the school for you!
The Mayfair community is at the heart of Mayfair School and Mayfair School is the heart of the Mayfair community.
We have 5 values that we promote daily;
I do my personal best
I can communicate
I have a positive attitude
I show respect
I am a learner
We are always willing to discuss your child's learning and our school and I look forward to meeting you and your child in the future.
