We are a small U2–3 (roll dependent) school on the fringe of Napier city. We cater for children from Y1–8. Currently, we have 4 classrooms which have all been modernised to meet the current standards. The school can accommodate 100 children and roll numbers are just below that, allowing smaller numbers in our new entrant class. The Ministry is currently future planning to add more classrooms as the student population is expected to grow. 

In 2020 additional space will be added to the school which will provide for a larger library, staffroom, resource storage and multi-purpose space which will allow the whole school to meet in one space. A new adventure playground has just been installed at the front of the school.

The BOT are looking for someone to sensitively continue the learning journey of the school. The staff are motivated and have achieved a lot in the last few years.

Our school requires a principal who has a clear vision for the future development of teaching and learning in the school based on current educational thinking.

This provides a useful platform for the board to review its strategic direction and vision. This needs to involve seeking the aspirations of parents, whānau, students and staff.

Our school has committed, enthusiastic and motivated teachers who provide outstanding learning opportunities that see our students exceed expectations in a rural environment.

Teachers have participated in a range of professional development, including He Papa Tikanga, te reo workshops, digital fluency PLD, fundamental skills (PE), leadership PLGs, maths workshops, and coaching.

We are currently staffed by 4 FTE permanent teachers including the principal and 1 fixed-term teacher. Ancillary staff includes: caretaker, contract cleaner, school secretary, special needs and teacher aides.

The school is a member of the Whirinaki Community of Learning (Kāhui Ako).
