North Loburn is a decile 9 U3 rural full primary school, located in North Canterbury. The school has a growing roll fed by subdivision of local farmland into ‘lifestyle blocks’. The school community is made up of a mix of families who have long historical connections to the area and to the school, and a growing number of new residents to the area (of whom a significant number are also new residents to New Zealand).
The school is the hub of the community and enjoys active support from attending families and the wider community. Parental involvement in learning, property maintenance, fundraising and promotion of the school are special traits, which the Board of Trustees aims to nurture and maintain as the school grows and develops.
The school has a well-established focus on supporting innovative, quality teaching using digital technologies to maximize student achievement, engage the community and remove barriers presented by geographical isolation.
