Facilities and Resources

We have generous teaching and learning spaces, as well as substantial school grounds containing large grassed playing fields, large tar-sealed court areas and adventure playgrounds. Indeed, we are one of the newest schools in the Wellington region.

All classrooms have an Interactive Projector, with access to numerous net books, iPads and computers. To help with developing technological skills and for research we have a specially built Information Centre (also with an Interactive Projector), which is conveniently attached to our well-resourced Library. We are well resourced in all Curriculum areas.


We have very high expectations of our students in all areas of learning and behaviour. We have clear protocols for dealing with anything less.

While we have a substantial focus on Reading, Writing and Mathematics, we also ensure that all areas of the NZ Curriculum are well covered. Many opportunities are given to Physical Activities and Sport, and we are increasingly using technology for learning.
