Principal's Welcome

Nau mai, haere mai.

Welcome to Cashmere Avenue School| Marae Roa o Khandallah

I am Adelle Jensen and I am so privileged to be the Tumuaki/Principal here at Cashmere Avenue School. 

At Cashmere Avenue we equip our learners to learn and thrive together. Our children are curious.  They remind us that learning can start with a question and lead to a rich inquiry.  Our children want to connect ideas, discuss and problem solve. They are explorers inspired by teachers who create powerful learning opportunities and respectful classroom cultures.  Cashmere Avenue teachers are ākonga/learners too- we inquire into how we can broaden children’s values and capabilities even more. With a stunning outlook to the Wellington harbour, Cashmere Avenue is a hub in our community.  It has years of stories, plenty of heart and a great deal of pride. Cashmere Avenue school is a taonga, and our people are our treasure.  

We welcome enrolments from families in our enrolment zone. At times we also open the ballot for out of zone enrolments. If you are looking for a school for your child, please take a look around our website. You are welcome to visit- I would love to meet you and show you around our amazing school.
