We are a multicultural school that draws from a diverse community. The main ethnic representations are: NZ European, NZ Maori, Pasifika, Indian, Chinese and other ethnicities. We have a very supportive community who enjoy welcoming international students into their homes.

Principal & Curriculum

We have a long-serving principal, Mr Richard Limbrick, and a supportive Board of Trustees. As a school we strive to ensure that all of our children achieve well in all curriculum areas. Emphasis is placed on developing independence and positive work habits, along with self discipline and courtesy. The children are involved in a broad range of activities that extend the curriculum and develop individual talents.
