Welcome to Ellerslie School
Established in May 1877, Ellerslie School celebrates a proud history of providing quality education to Year 1-8 students for the last 142 years, making it one of the oldest schools in Auckland.
Every child deserves to experience a safe and enjoyable time at school as well as be given the chance to learn the important skills needed to be successful in an ever changing world. At the heart of the teaching and learning programmes sit the 5Cs of Learning (Creative, Confident, Collaborative, Compassionate, Curious) and the 5Bs of Behaviour (Be kind, Be a good friend, Be helpful, Be respectful and Be responsible). These important concepts are woven through all areas of learning and referred to on a daily basis.
The dedicated and committed staff at Ellerslie School is focused on developing strong partnerships with whanau and the community. We believe this is essential to ensuring we create an environment where every young person feels that they thrive and be happy.
Again, welcome to the Ellerslie family. Our door is always open and we look forward to supporting your child to be the best they can be.
