Welcome to



Kia ora, nisa bula, talofa, malo e’lelei, kia orana, kamusta and namaste! Welcome to Stanhope Road School.

It’s a great honour to be the principal of this amazing school. Our beautiful school is filled with passionate people who are dedicated to providing the best learning  opportunities and experiences to the tamariki/children at Stanhope.

Our staff build connections and relationships and will always put the students’ needs first to ensure they have every opportunity to reach their potential. They are committed to bringing passion and energy to Stanhope to ensure that it is the ‘School of Choice’ for all learners. Our team work hard to create an environment that is fun, engaging and learning-focused.

Students care about each other, themselves and the environment. We love to celebrate the successes of each individual child and empower the students to be ‘Friends, Learners and Guardians’ in all we say and do.

The School Board and the Parent Group are incredibly active in our school community and strive to support all the students to give them the best deal possible. We are a well-resourced school.

Our School Vision and Values underpin our drive and aspirations for not only the students and staff but the community as well. Home-school engagement is crucial for the success of our tamariki/children. By working in partnership we build strong, productive connections that support the learning goals of our tamariki/children.

We look forward to you and your child joining the Stanhope Road School whānau. Together we can provide an environment for your child where they will thrive and succeed in this ever-changing, fast-moving world.

Stanhope Road School – Urgent Message

School will now start on the 7th February

Stanhope Road School has been notified that the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has asked the Secretary of Education to take action to help minimise traffic movement on Auckland roads while vital infrastructure is urgently repaired. With the possibility of further weather damage leading to more disruption, the Secretary of Education has directed that schools, kura, early learning services and Tertiary institutions in the Auckland region must close physical attendance and instruction until 7th February.

I know this announcement will cause disruption to our wh?nau and whole community and I thank you for adapting to this situation quickly. Please let as many families as you can know so that the message can get out to our entire community. Stay safe over the week and let us know if you need support during this time. 

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all on the 7th February.
