Ngatapa School is a small rural school nestled
amongst the rolling hills on the outskirts of Gisborne.
Our wonderful students range from Years 0 to 8. Our enthusiastic,
energetic, and innovative teaching staff offer our students
stimulating and innovative teaching and learning programmes aimed at
addressing the learning needs of each child.
Our class and resource rooms are equipped with an array of fantastic
resources to aid teaching and learning right across the curriculum.
We ensure that ICT is integrated into all teaching so as to prepare
the students for their future ahead.
We provide a caring environment that encourages personal excellence
and a feeling of success. We take great efforts to ensure that
positive virtues are taught, encouraged and exhibited throughout the
school. We are blessed with a wonderfully supportive Board and
community. The local hall is located on school grounds and is
regularly enjoyed by the school, playgroup, and community, as well
as other groups and organisations on occasion.
As principal I practice an open door policy and encourage parents
and the community to participate in the education of their children
through regular school contact. I thank you for considering Ngatapa
School and welcome your queries or questions, and look forward to
meeting you soon.
