Creating excellent futures together

Te Kura Takawaenga o Puketirohanga

We have 2 exciting events coming up next week – our Taster Day and Open Day.
As part of our Taster Day on Wednesday June 19 the YR 6 tamariki from our local Primary Schools participate in a variety of exciting activities alongside our YR 7 RI rangatahi – developing our tuakana-teina as they get a taste of what being part of the RI Whānau is like!
Our Open Day follows on Saturday June 22 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm. SLT, Kaiako and our Leadership Coucil invite Whānau in and around our community to come and experience what RI has to offer.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with our Office Staff.

Principal's Welcome

Tēnā koutou katoa,

I am honoured to join the Rangeview Intermediate School Whānau as your new Tumuaki (Principal) from Term 3, 2023. My name is Jesmond Filipo, and I am thrilled to be a part of this enthusiastic community.

I am deeply committed to creating an environment where our students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. It is my goal to ensure that Rangeview Intermediate School continues to be a place where children develop a love for learning, while also nurturing their confidence, resilience, and respect for others. Together, we will prepare them for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

A “Westie” through and through, this has given me a strong understanding of the aspirations and dreams of our whānau and aiga. I recognise the importance of supporting and empowering our community to achieve success. Outside of education, I have a passion for family, sport, and food. In my free time, you’ll often find me playing sports, eating, or spending time with my whānau.

I am excited to work closely with all of you—our students, teachers, staff, and families — as we embark on this journey together. By building strong relationships, fostering a culture of care and respect, and promoting a love for learning, we will create an inclusive and supportive school environment.

I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you and getting to know the Rangeview Intermediate School Whānau. Together, we will continue to build a school community that thrives and celebrates the achievements of every individual.

Nāku noa,

Jesmond Filipo
