School Pool

After many years of fundraising, our School and Community Pool was built in 2009. It consists of a large 20m x 8m pool and a small toddler pool. It is fully heated and covered and is proving to be an amazing asset to the school and community.


The school library is in the central area of the school and is a delight to enter. It is open throughout the day and also before and after school. Parents are most welcome to visit the Library with their children to exchange books and enjoy the environment. We also make the library available during the summer holidays so that children have the opportunity to get books out over this long break.

Digital Facilities

Our school is a digital school. Our junior/new entrant classroom has access to iPads. Students in years 4 - 8 are fully digital with one to one devices.  Our students use chromebooks that are purchased through the Toki Pounamu Trust.  These devices can either be purchase out right or by entering into a payment scheme.

Outdoor Facilities

We have excellent spaces for outside activities, including two large hard-court areas and an extensive field, playground, sandpit and orchard area which the children utilise for both sporting and play activities.  We have a bike track that was designed by our students and developed by  our parent community.

Travel to School

The majority of our children bus to school with five buses transporting our students. Three of the bus runs are run by the school, and are directly resourced from the Ministry of Education. The other two bus runs are run by Harkerss, the company that currently holds the tender for bus routes for the Ministry of Education.  Safety vests for all children are provided and these are required to be worn to and from school.

School Dental Clinic

The school is visited once a year by the Dental caravan.
