Principal's Welcome

Tēnā koutou katoa,

I am privileged to be the Tumuaki/School Leader of Alfriston College. We are proud of our innovative, holistic and personalised learning opportunities that we provide for learners within our richly diverse community.

Alfriston College is a learning community that is committed to developing and supporting life-long independent learners. Learners will thrive in our environment that fosters a sense of Belonging, values Learning and expects Success. This is reflected in our life-long values: Whakapapa (Connection), Tu Maia (Confidence), Ahuatanga (Character), Mātau (Competence).

We embrace the unique individual and cultural identities our learners bring. The learning opportunities we provide build on this by being connected, authentic and relevant.

Alfriston College learners are empowered to actively participate and contribute to all aspects of school life. Our aspiration is that all learners will grow into confident and competent young people who can contribute to a future Aotearoa.

Our staff are dedicated to modelling life-long learning and their own professional development to support our learners to unlock their potential. We are focused on using restorative practices to uphold a safe and inclusive learning environment for everyone.

We are proud of being a school that is responsive to our learners needs and excels growth through care and high expectations. We look forward to you being part of our learning community and sharing in our Zest for Learning – Te ihi ki te ako.

Ngā mihi maioha,
Kylee Jefferies
School Leader
