A little bit about us....

We are a purpose built MLE school, the first to be built as part of the Canterbury rebuild. Prior to moving to our new school site at the beginning of Term 2, 2014, the school was located in Waikuku, and celebrated its 140th anniversary there in 2013.       

All our children and teachers are in Learning Communities (LCs). Each LC operates with a team of up to four teachers.  

All LCs have a specific identity that relates to our local environment. Our children learn the story attached to their LC and are encouraged to grow their knowledge and interest in the specific local environments.    

We are a zero-net energy school, and have a strong focus on eco awareness.   Our vision is to challenge and inspire adventurers, creators and thinkers. 

We are passionate about collaborative teaching and learning, place based learning, and nurturing our kids to be Kaitiaki (guardians). 

We place huge value on engaging our community in all aspects of school life.   We have over 450 students and a rapidly growing roll.    

We think our school is an extremely exciting and rewarding place to teach and learn. If you are totally committed to working in a dynamic team environment where reflection and continual growth is not just expected, it is demanded then keep an eye on this page!
