Welcome from the Principal

Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou katoa. Nau mai, haere mai ki te kura tuarua o Kaikōura.

Welcome to an environment of care, opportunity fun and education. Kaikōura High School may be a small co-educational secondary school but it is nestled in a stunning setting with a team of staff that care deeply about our students being equipped to take on life in the wider world.

As a board and school, we have high expectations for our students and ourselves and we aspire to have our whole school community role model the values of Hiranga/Excellence, Whāinga/Endeavour, Whakapono/Integrity, Whakaute/Respect and Awhi. We acknowledge as a school the privilege we have as we work with Te Rūnanga o Kaikōura in our cultural space.

Success can take many forms and we are committed to students achieving their form of success no matter the area – academic, sporting, cultural or social. Our goal is to give opportunities where students can show their wide range of skills in our unique environment.

I invite you to join us in developing our students as leaders for the future, able to navigate and contribute to Kaikōura and the world.

Jo Fissenden – Principal

Kaikoura High School Head Students
