Yendarra School in Otara, South Auckland is a tranquil haven of learning where students, teachers and parents share a vision to ‘be the best we can’.
On behalf of our school whānau, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. At Yendarra we aim to live our vision ‘Kia pai taea tatou - Be the BEST we can’ by embracing our school values of aroha, manaakitanga, piripono and especially, whanaungatanga. We have an inclusive school culture and extend a warm welcome to all who enrol.
Our learning environment supports our tamariki, whānau and teachers through high standards for teaching practice, tamariki behaviour and tamariki achievement. We know that a safe and supportive school goes hand in hand with learning and success. Central to our school environment is an ongoing commitment to good nutrition. We are a ‘water only’ school where students bring healthy homemade lunches and snacks to fuel their day.
We are always so proud of our children, who thrive in our school environment and can be relied upon to ‘be the BEST they can’ in many different settings. Every day I am inspired by their determination to learn, and manaakitanga for others.
It is a privilege to be principal of Yendarra School and lead a team who are truly dedicated to the tamariki they teach and the community they serve. Whether you’re visiting this website as a parent or an educator, we invite you to ask any questions you like.
