Welcome from the Principal

Tena koutou katoa, talofa lava, malo e lelei, kia orana, taloha ne, fakalofa lahi atu, nǐ hǎo, namaste, bula vinaka and welcome. 

I am very delighted and proud to be the Principal of Chapel Downs Primary School and am honoured to be leading such an effective learning community. It is a pleasure to lead a very committed and fun team of teachers and support staff. 


Chapel Downs School is a large multi-cultured school with a long tradition of providing learning for life and ensuring that children are valued and supported to make effective choices.

The core business at Chapel Downs School is based on ensuring that children have all the skills needed in literacy and numeracy and meet the expected levels of achievement for their age. Alongside this we want to ensure that every child leaves Chapel Downs School being a well-rounded citizen and upholds our values. 

We welcome parents/caregivers into our school and we love forming relationships with our community. When home, school and the child are all connected research shows children develop positive attitudes for learning and achieve accordingly. Our doors are always open at school and we welcome your input.

Please feel free to ring the office to make an appointment with me, or you can email me at vaughanv@chapeldowns.school.nz
