OUR PRINCIPAL - MICHELLE SPENCER
Michelle is Renwick School's Tumuaki / Principal
It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Tumuaki of Renwick School. I am very excited to be working alongside such a passionate and dedicated team of staff who have the best interest of all students at heart.
I look forward to supporting the staff of Renwick School to continue to grow as activators of learning, designing experiences that build on learner’s strengths and needs, create new knowledge using real-life authentic problem solving as well as helping students to identify their talents, purpose and passion.
I look forward to getting to know the community of Renwick and ways we can connect.

TE WHARE MANAAKI Student Support Hub
OUR MISSION: To provide excellence in education with sensitivity to the community's aspirations
OUR VISION: He mana tō te ako kei a koe te tikanga: Learning is strength - be the best you can be
OUR VALUES: Our values are the important qualities we try to live by and show in the ways we ourselves go about our work and in our relationships with others in our school and beyond.
Our values are:
Positive Relationships / Whakawhanaungatanga
Respect / Manaakitanga
Resilience / Taikaha
Integrity / Pono
Our Vision Statement
Our values system is based around our vision statement:
'He mana tō te ako kei a koe te tikanga: Learning is strength - be the best you can be'
Each class establishes what this means for them and those around them at school, at home and in the community and this then forms the basis for their room's learning and behaviour expectations and indeed that of the school.
The Give It A Go Rock
Our vision statement is reinforced in many ways throughout the school in the form of class awards, values awards and our Supreme Award - The Give it a Go Kid Rock which is presented fortnightly to a "Give it a Go" student who lives the values behind our vision statement. The Give it a Go Kid Rock (pictured on a plinth in the photo above), which originated from the local Wairau river, depicts the unique Renwick environment and represents the many twists and turns in the pathways of learning and life.
