Week 7 Term 2 2018

The 12th of June 2018 has imprinted itself into my memory and I'm sure it will be a reference point for me from now on. Have a look at some of the pictures taken by our neighbours of the flooding around our school. Also please check if your Emergency Contact information is up-to-date.

Week 6 Term 2 2018

We managed to get two plays outside today which was good going this week. Please bring spare clothes to school this winter as we know how children love to play in muddy puddles. Keeping our germs to ourselves has also been a hot topic in classroom discussions. Coming up later in the term we'll have Senior Interviews and reports.

Week 5 Term 2 2018

Just a reminder of our school mission this week: To develop life skills through engagement and awareness. We are all about putting these important skills in front of our students so it was good to head to the Library this week and see all the important jobs the Librarians do.

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
