Ko Ngahina Transom ahau.
Ngahina Transom, principal of Frimley Primary School since March 2022, deputy principal 2018-2022. Frimley School has 550 ākonga in a diverse student roll with 42 per cent Māori, 10 per cent Pasifika, 24 per cent Indian/Asian and 38 per cent Pākehā.
Frimley’s curriculum, Ngā Ara Matauranga, is based on a relationship with mana-whenua, where the school ensures that tamariki know, understand, and experience learning that is rich, authentic, and relevant to past and present.
There is a school expectation that te reo is integrated and woven into all learning and that everyone in the kura is a learner. Te reo has been a professional expectation since 2018. All of Frimley’s kaiako and kaiawhina set goals, have weekly internal lessons, and have defined expectations in their roles and responsibilities to uphold in the kura.
