Our school is situated in an attractive rural setting five kilometres north west of Albany, twenty kilometres north of Auckland city.
There are currently ten classrooms operating. These operate as two teams, Kauri (Junior) and Totara (Senior) with the roll to reach the mid-high 200s by the end of the year.
Staffing includes a principal, two Deputy Principals, ten full-time teachers and two part-time teachers. We have part-time specialist teachers for ICT, Music and Art. We run a Gifted and Talented Education Programme, Special Needs programmes and the Reading Recovery programme.
Ancillary staff include three teacher aides, an office manager, an office assistant and a caretaker. Facilities include a large administration block, four resource rooms, a multi-purpose room, music tutor spaces, withdrawal rooms, storage rooms and sheds. We have a large, well stocked Library, well equipped Arts and Technology Centre, and a spacious Music room and numerous instruments. There are several well developed playground areas and a fitness circuit. A bus service was introduced two years ago, although many children are transported to school by private car.
