From the Principal

It is an honour to be the Principal/Tumuaki for Bream Bay College. We are a proud
community focused school serving the stunning Bream Bay rohe. 

Our school culture reflects the unique history of our region, connecting the first people of our area, Patuharakeke, the first modern immigrants from Scotland and the many other cultures that are now part of the fabric of our region.  

As a college we aspire to reflect our MANA values 

Manaakitanga (hosting) 

Awhi (supporting each other)  

Ngakaunui (being curious) 

Aroha (working with positivity)  

Bream Bay College students are empowered to take an active role in the life of the school and their learning. We do this through involvement in one of the student councils, our student mentors’ group and through the opportunities to engage in authentic contexts through our focus on deep learning.  

We are a school that looks for constructive solutions to challenges by using Restorative Practices to support a safe and inclusive environment.  

Through our school culture, and values we activate our students and unlock their potential.
