Our school is set amidst farmland overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the land slopes north towards the sun. Our playground is huge, with play opportunities ranging from tennis on the court to hut-building in the trees.
Our community is extremely supportive and sees the school as a focal point for the townships of Long Beach, Purakaunui and Osborne.
The children enjoy being part of a large "school family" with all ages from 5 to 12 mixing for play and study. Our experienced and deeply committed staff ensure the education programme is fun, varied and challenging.
