Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We aim for the website to be a place where you can find information about our school and where we can communicate with you.
Balmoral is an innovative and forward-thinking school. On our site we have both a primary school and an intermediate school. Our most recent Education Review Office report highlighted the teaching in our classrooms and our integrated learning approach through our development of Rich Tasks. This approach is in line with the recent changes in the New Zealand Curriculum. We are constantly looking for ways to improve in order to make classroom programmes as challenging and exciting as we can.
The vision for our school is simple. It will be a place where children can obtain the highest quality education. It will be a place where teachers and students feel challenged and safe, can innovate, make mistakes and achieve great things. Staff will love their work because the children will want to learn. It will be a place where good friends are made and great stories will be told. It will be a place where teachers and children can gain a greater understanding of the world around them. It will be a place where we discover our nation’s heritage and celebrate who we are. And it will be a place where parents will play an active role in supporting all our childrens’ learning.
