The juniors were ruling the roost while the seniors were away this week. Make sure to see some pictures of Camp in next week's newsletter. Looks like the Juniors had fun without the senior here anyway. Mrs Cambie gives a well written intro and Athletics next week.

Principal's Letter

Ngatapa School is a vibrant, rural school with a caring and future-focused community. Just a short drive from the robust city of Gisborne, our school is set within the very picturesque Ngatapa Valley and features within it's grounds a number of student friendly discovery areas.

Our commitment to the education of our students is unquestionable with a board committed to funding small classroom sizes. The classrooms themselves are well resourced learning areas that have been updated to provide a range of breakout spaces. We are committed to integrating 21st Century technology within our learning programmes. Ensuring our students are connected learners is one of our school's strategic goals.

We are committed to adhering to the Education for Sustainability model.

Our Green-gold EnviroSchool's accreditation has been a learning journey undertaken by students, educators and community alike over a period of almost 10 years. This is a commitment that none of the current staff and community take lightly but more so embraces with an inherited sense of responsibility.

As principal I embrace the mantra: life is for living. Our students enjoy life because we endeavour to provide an environment, resources, quality learning focuses and an understanding of Whanaungatanga. We invite any queries or question you may have. Link
