Titirangi Primary

Julie Lynch, Principal

Titirangi Primary School sits on it’s third site, built in 1939, developed from the fire struck ruins of the first public school in Auckland built in 1860. We are located in the beautiful, bush-clad setting of the Waitakere Ranges in West Auckland. At Titirangi Primary School we aim to "Inspire Every Learner To Thrive and Succeed". We do this by taking a shared responsibility to ensure we are providing our students with innovative learning opportunities within a supportive and caring environment. We believe in every student, in getting to know them well and aiming to instil a love of learning through the school values as ‘Achievers’, ‘Thinkers’, ‘Connected’, ‘Well-rounded’ and ‘Respectful’. The culture of the school is underpinned by Ako Tahi|Learn Together, Whanaungatanga|Relationships, Manaakitanga|Rights and Responsibilities and Mahi Tahi|Collaboration. Relationships are important to us and we have a genuine commitment to working in partnership with our students, their parents and whānau so we can deliver the very best outcomes. The collaboration within the Kōituitui Kāhui Ako is exciting as we strengthen connections across our communities for our schools, teachers, students.

As a CoL team we are focussing on: How can we effectively embed best practise in writing throughout the school, ensuring that all staff - including new and fixed term teachers can follow our TPS guidelines, so that all students (not just priority) make accelerated progress in writing. I am also focussing on the best way to make our writing visible within our school and in the future, our school community.
