Kia Ora, and Welcome to Glenavon School.
We are a growing, multicultural school in Blockhouse Bay with big dreams. We aim for every child to reach their full potential, believing that all our students can achieve extraordinary things. 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 on student achievement, not just in reading, writing, and maths, but in all curriculum areas.
We are a Year 1 – 8 school with a Community Hub, Glenavon Early Childhood Centre, and Te Ara Hou, our Oaklynn Satellite unit, all on the Glenavon School site, creating a unique community atmosphere.
Our teachers are 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, with many opportunities to celebrate and share all the cultures we have represented.
We trust this page will provide you with valuable information about our school. If you would like to know more, you are most welcome to pop in and have a look around.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Staff, and Students, welcome to the Glenavon Whānau.
