2024 School Staff

Methven Primary School’s leadership team consists of a principal and two deputy principals. Our school is divided into three teams (Mahuri, Piwakawaka, Opuke); each with a team leader. Our enthusiastic, dedicated teachers are supported by a wonderful range of release teachers, teacher aides and support staff.
