Kia ora and welcome
It’s a new season at Glenavon and the school is absolutely buzzing!
But don’t just take our word for it – we were a finalist in the 2018 Prime Minister’s Excellence Awards AND we have a glowing ERO report here!
We are a growing, multicultural school in Blockhouse Bay with big dreams. Our aim is for every child to reach their full potential and we have a proud record of high achievers. We acknowledge that success comes from a strong link between home and school and we work hard to maintain our strong community partnerships.
Our focus is strongly on student achievement; not just in reading, writing and maths, but in all areas of the curriculum.
We are a Year 1 – 8 school with a Community Hub, an Early Childhood and Te Ara Hou unit attached, and have a unique community atmosphere. Senior students are actively encouraged to be leaders in their school and community.
We have an absolutely exceptional team of teachers who are passionate about our school and our kids. Every single one of our teachers are brilliant! Our staff are talented, creative and have high expectations of themselves and their students. We strive to create meaningful and engaging contexts for our students so that they develop a love for learning.
We trust that this website will provide you with some valuable information about our school. If you would like to know more you are most welcome to pop into school and have a look around.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Staff, and students, welcome to the Glenavon family.
