About

Our vibrant city school of two hundred and sixty students is hidden deep in the heart of the community called Newfield in Invercargill. A community that is working together to empower children to succeed through learning.

We care about our students, their families, the people who work here and our community.

We want our children to be happy, caring and successful.

Our tailor-made curriculum is built around ideas and values that are important to our community – manaakitanga, whanaungatanga, perseverance and excellence. We believe children are motivated and engaged learners when relationships are valued and honoured, they get involved in their learning and they have a strong sense of self.

We offer opportunities for children to be socially responsiblepractice environmental sustainability, explore identity, creativity and well being, and be curious about the physical world.

There are leadership programmes, ski trips and camps for senior students …

swimming and sports programmes … kapahaka and pasifika cultural groups … choir and cultural festivals, art exhibitions …

Putake koreo (speech competitions), Polyfest, and out of school sports.

The school is well resourced with digital devices – many of the tools which will help our students communicate in a 21st century way.

We are proud of our library and the high quality learning resources that we have that support our students in their reading, writing and mathematics.

There is plenty of room to play and have fun on our expansive grounds, including a large playing field, adventure playgrounds and quiet areas for sitting and enjoying the fresh air.

We welcome visitors and would love to share our school with you, so please don’t hesitate to contact us and come and see for yourself.
