Welcome to the Bailey Road School website.
I have the honour of being the Principal of this marvelous school of approximately 500 students.
Community, students, whānau and staff work together to provide our tamariki with all of the learning opportunities and experiences we are able, to arm them with options and choices when they move further along their life journeys.
We endeavour to empower, resource and respect all who work and volunteer at our school so that we can focus our combined energy upon our core roles of teaching, mentoring, guiding and encouraging our tamariki to believe that they can achieve whatever they set out to do.
Whether student or staff member we challenge ourselves daily to be the very best we can be.
