School Phone and Internet Out of Service due to SNUP
As was mentioned in the NewsSheet a few weeks ago the Board of Trustees along with the Ministry of Education are upgrading the data network within the school through a project called SNUP (School Network Upgrade Project). Contractors have been working in the school and are nearing completion of this project. From Midday on Friday 21 November the contractors will be switching our current network over to the new one. This means there will be no internet connection throughout the school while this occurs and this will impact on email communication. After 3.15pm on Friday 21 November the school phones will be switched off while the system is moved within the school. Consequently we will not be able to receive or make calls from the school phones for the rest of that day. If you need to contact the school while the phones are down please use this phone number 022 631 0815. These tasks are necessary to complete the project and we have tried to limit the disruption as much as possible.

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
