Welcome to Ellerslie School.
Today we are a full primary (Year 1 - 8) that has enjoyed a long history since its establishment in May 1877.
It is the belief of our learning community that we are all here, teachers, parents and students, to enrich children's learning. It is the close co-operation between parents and teachers that ensures quality educational experiences for our students.
Our programmes are structured to cater for the needs of each individual, so that they may develop to their full potential. Our aim is to deliver to pupils, rich and wide-ranging programmes. From this curriculum children will acquire knowledge, learn skills and form attitudes, which will help their development, now and in the future.
We are focused on working with you the whanau, and your child. You want your child to thrive. To be happy and focused in an environment that encourages, supports and inspires them in every way. Once again, welcome to the Ellerslie family and we look forward to supporting your child to be the best they can be.
