Principal appointment at Pukekohe Intermediate School

I am very pleased to announce that Rebekah Pearson has been appointed as our new principal and will begin in her new role at the beginning of term 2, 2022. The board were indeed very fortunate to have strong applicants for the position and Rebekah deservedly gained success following a round of final interviews last Saturday.

Rebekah has been our deputy principal for the past 6 years and previous to that held other leadership roles in the school. She has taught for over 20 years in a variety of Auckland schools – primary, intermediate and secondary. Being a very experienced teacher and educational leader Rebekah is also well qualified holding a Bachelor’s in Arts Degree, a Post Graduate Diploma of Teaching and is continuing to grow her knowledge and understanding of Te Reo Maori mea nga tikanga Maori.

Family is important to Rebekah and she enjoys supporting her three children with their sporting pursuits and educational endeavours.

Rebekah is excited about the challenges that lie ahead as the school’s leader and has appreciated the guidance she has received from Gary Sweeney, the retiring principal at the school.

From Rebekah – “It is both an honour and a privilege to be appointed the new principal of Pukekohe Intermediate School from the beginning of term 2, 2022. I look forward to serving our students, staff, whānau and the school community while upholding our school HEART values; Kia pono, Kia manāki, Kia āhei, Ka Rangatira, Kia kotahi.”

Stacey Davis
Pukekohe Intermediate School Board chairperson.

Usually, at this time of the year our Y8 Learning Community Student Leaders come out to our contributing schools to talk to the Y6 students about life at Pukekohe Intermediate School. Instead, they have prepared a video from their homes to share with you.


We know that starting a new school is both exciting and challenging. Here are some tips, tricks and advice to all of our Y6 students coming to Pukekohe Intermediate School in 2022. From one student to another!


Thanks to our Learning Community Student Leaders listed below who shared their advice and to Miss Salisbury for putting the video together.

Welcome to

Pukekohe Intermediate School

Pukekohe Intermediate provides your child and your family the option to step into a school environment that acts as a bridge between primary and secondary.  We continue home room classrooms for all students and add to this programmes and opportunities across a number of other classrooms with specialist teachers.  We strive to meet the learning needs and styles of all students.


Pukekohe Intermediate school supports this new help service in our local community. Joanne is a fully trained teacher and a previous member of our staff working within the RTLB service.

Is your child struggling with literacy and/or numeracy? We offer tutoring with individualised programs to meet their needs.

Is your child anxious? We offer groups that help build resilience.


We have a Brick by Brick Club which helps students to make friends, cooperate, listen and develop oral language skills through building LEGO together.

After school sessions 3.30-4.30 and 4.45-5.45.
