Our School Vision
Together/Ngātahi – Aspire/Manawanui – Succeed/Tutukitanga
Welcome to our school website and thank you for taking the time to find out a bit about our wonderful school. Northcote Primary School (NPS) was established on its Lake Road / Onewa Road site, in 1918. In mid 2018 we opened a new two-level classroom block and office space, and a new Administration building. We also celebrated our centennary during this time. Since then we have been making steady progress to refurbish and upgrade the remaining buildings that range in age with the oldest being built in 1926!
We have a very dedicated staff who show a genuine commitment to their work and the NPS students. We utilise an inquiry learning approach which provides real-life learning opportunities to our students. Our number one priority is that all our staff and students are happy and enjoy coming to school each day. Without that the learning journey can be pretty challenging.
NPS is well supported by a hardworking and skilful Board of Trustees (BOT) who provide governance and support for us all. Our parent PTA is known as Friends of Northcote School (FONS). FONS provide support, by developing a community focus that includes family activities and funding / promoting projects. Our site has extensive grounds, playing surfaces / structures and mature trees that all add much to the daily life of the School. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of our wider school community.
Feel free to contact the office and make a time to come in to meet us if you are not already a member of our school community.
