Shannon Primary School provides a secure, happy and challenging learning environment where children are given many opportunities to develop intellectually and socially. We recognise education involves a partnership between home and school working together in the best interest of each child. We are very much a local community school.
We are a full primary school which means we have classes from Year 1 to 8. We have the option of Year 1 to 6 children learning in our Rumaki Reo, total Maori immersion class. We also have a preschool onsite that directly feeds into our junior school, as well as a local kohunga reo and playcentre. We provide an up-to-date, balanced and positive learning environment centred around inquiry learning, using our local environment as a base for much of our learning.
We expect high achievement and effort of our students and this is acknowledged and celebrated. Social skills are encouraged through contact with students of differing abilities and through our close bi-cultural interaction.
Shannon School operates an open door policy and has a warm, approachable staff. It is our firm belief that working closely with families enables us to provide an opportunity for children to develop into happy, educated, life-long learners.
