Principal's Letter

Ngatapa School is a vibrant, rural school with a caring and future-focused community. Our board has committed itself to funding small classroom sizes and 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.

Our school has a strong focus on Sustainability and Environmental issues. The school has replanted large areas of it's land back into forested zones including native species. 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 and we continue to challenge our students to think environmentally today.

As principal I love what this community has created around this historic school. With the students at the center of our focus we'll continue to provide a hub of learning and community. Please contact us if you would like to find out more. Contact Us
