Our mission statement above says it all.  

Kia Ora and welcome to our website that will hopefully act as a 'first base' for you regarding our school around up-to-date information about the physical and the pedagogical happenings here in our evolving (and really cool) environment.

We are a state-owned, full primary school with a roll that fluctuates from around 330 students in February through to  approximately 365 students in December each year.  Our students are aged between 5 - 13 years. We currently have have 14 whanau classes, from New Entrants to year 8, that work in collaborative teaching and learning spaces that aim to make the most of everyones skills and strengths.

Our school is located at the southern end of Rangiora, a rapidly growing town in the centre of the bustling Waimakariri District. We are in a state of real growth and because of this we are currently involved in a building project that will enhance and modernise our teaching spaces to be some of the most functional in the area.

We love seeing all members of our team grow and evolve as they spend time here and celebrate the great people who add to their 3-kete each day.

Enjoy your visit!
