Mrs Glen Vinton
Principal

Mrs VintonThroughout my teaching career I have taught in a range of schools, extending from a period of over five years in decile 1 schools, through to extensive experience in decile 10 schools. I have taught all year levels from year four to year eight. However, the bulk of my teaching career has been at the intermediate level.

In 1996 I had the privilege of being seconded to the Auckland Advisory Service as an ICT advisor to schools. My interest in ICT has continued over the years and I see ICT tools as essential to teaching and learning programmes.

I commenced my senior management experience by being appointed to the Associate Principal position at Somerville Intermediate School in East Auckland when it established in 1997. The experience of setting up a new school was a wonderful opportunity and taught me a lot about the functioning of a school.

In 2001 I moved to the position of Deputy Principal at Belmont Intermediate and then became Acting Principal for the last fifteen months I was at the school.

In April 2003 I was appointed as Principal of Stanley Bay School.

I believe that a primary school child must have a strong grounding in numeracy and literacy to ensure that they are able to cope with intermediate and secondary schooling. At Stanley bay School our morning programmes are designed to provide an extended period of time where numeracy and literacy are the prime focus. Our children come to school with excellent pre-school experiences and our expectation is for children to achieve well above national norms in both literacy and numeracy.

A nurturing environment that promotes a desire to learn is an important part of our school culture. Programmes are developed to ensure children are taught to respect themselves, others and property. Leadership opportunities are available that encourage children to gain self-confidence and the children play an active part in the daily running of the school.
