School Access during the Holidays
Monday 26 September to Sunday 9 October
During the holiday break we are recommending that the school site be closed from a Heath and Safety perspective due to the demolition process.
This process will include the removal of asbestos which will be undertaken by a specialised contractor. While the asbestos is being removed there will be a 5 meter no access zone surrounding the demolition area. This zone will be clearly identified. It is very unlikely that there would be any contamination as the process is carefully managed, however we have told all staff that they are not to be on site for the duration of the holidays and recommend the same to you as our community.
This notification is a recommendation only and not enforceable, however we need to state that we are not liable in any way if you do enter the school grounds during this time.
On returning to school you will see some changes:
There will be no change to:

NAU MAI HAERE MAI - WELCOME
On behalf of our School, I am delighted to have this opportunity to welcome you to our school website. Northcote Primary School was established on its Lake Road/Onewa Road site in 1918. The original building was replaced in the late 1970's by a custom designed flexible teaching space block. At the same time, the remainder of the school was extensively re-modelled internally. The school is fortunate to have a Staff who show a genuine commitment to their work and the children in their care. This is reflected in successive positive reports from the Education Review Office (ERO).
Classroom learning programmes are well resourced with modern technology and an Inquiry Learning approach, within language-rich environments. The School is well supported by a hardworking and skilful Board of Trustees. (BOT). A parent group known as "Friends of Northcote School" (FONS) provide support, by developing a community focus that includes family activities and funding/promoting projects. Our attractive site with extensive grounds, playing surfaces/structures and mature trees add much to the daily life of the School. Located on the site is a heated covered swimming pool and hall. Kind regards
