Matua School was established in 1965 and was first known as ‘Levers Road School’. The name changed to Matua School in 1966.
We take pride in developing and fostering our students’ talents to be successful in many aspects of their learning through our varied academic, sporting and cultural programmes. The foundation of these programmes is based on the characteristics of ‘The Matua Learner’
While we focus on Numeracy and Literacy we also believe in developing the whole child and ensuring creativity in our programmes. We are extremely proud of the ongoing achievements of our students.
It is a privilege to lead Matua School where empowerment, ownership and diversity show that people and their creativity are key ingredients in a great learning environment.
Our staff is highly qualified, motivated and committed to provide an enriched, interesting curriculum to meet our students’ needs and prepare them for future learning.
We are very well supported by our parents and diverse wider community, an active Parent Teacher Association and encouraging Board of Trustees.
We believe in strong, positive home-school partnerships where parents and teachers work together so our students reach their full potential and take full advantage of the learning opportunities provided at school. We value open communication - an essential component of these partnerships.
