Kaipara Flats School Vision

At Kaipara Flats School our children will be:

connected, confident, actively involved, lifelong learners.

Principals Message

2016 promises to be an exciting year at Kaipara Flats School. The school, last year set a two year goal of raising enough money to replace our very tired court area with a new all weather surface. Through the efforts of our fabulous PTA the funds were raised in year one and this year we will be working to implement our planned renovation.

This is an example of the exceptional community spirit evident at Kaipara Flats School. Our school serves an exceptional community that supports the school in so many ways, our PTA and Board are full of positive, incredibly hard working people and this is reflected in the school and the children.

Our School of approximately eighty children in four classes provides a supportive, positive environment where every child is nurtured and developed to meet their potential. Our experienced highly skilled staff care deeply about their children and go the extra mile to ensure their students are developed in every possible way. 

In 2016 we will be heavily focused on reviewing our curriculum documents and the way we implement the New Zealand Curriculum at Kaipara Flats. We have secured two contracts with the Ministry of Education to help us with this task and I look forward to this work being reflected in our children’s outcomes improving even further on our high level of achievement.

Kaipara Flats School provides a wonderfully rural environment and draws on a rich tradition with many of the families represented on our role being second and third generation, this underpins the very strong set of values that guide us as educators.

A feature of our school is the way in which our senior students care for our younger students and create a real family environment. The nature of a small school enables us to give all children a full range of experiences and learning experiences, nobody misses out, when we go to inter-school events we often take the whole school.

It is an absolute privilege to be Principal of Kaipara Flats School.
