Welcome to Selwyn Park School!

We cater for children from Year 1 to Year 6. We have the advantage of having Selwyn Park Kindergarten right next door so we often work closely with them.

We are a family oriented school and the concept of Whanau is an important part of our school philosophy.

Selwyn Park School is a Health Promoting School. We have our own school garden, which the children as part of their class programmes grow, care for, harvest and consume the produce.

Principal's Welcome

Tena Koutou, Talofa lava, Malo e lelei, Kia Orana, Bula Vinaka, Fakaalofa lahi atu, Namaste, Taloha ni and warm greetings to you all!

At our core, we want all of our tamariki (kids) to do well in Kura (school).  Students are encouraged to do their best and personal achievement is seen as a core value in our school culture.  The routines here at Selwyn Park School are carefully planned to help students grow by teaching them to take responsibility for their actions and do everything with a whole-hearted approach.

The teachers at Selwyn Park School are experts in their fields and love what they do. They get a lot of joy from working with our tamariki. In the same way that children and their parents choose Selwyn Park school.  Parents and students often say how much they appreciate how hard our teachers work for them, whether it's by encouraging energy and creativity in the classroom, helping students be persistent and independent in their learning habits, or organising learning outside of the classroom and planning our yearly school Hikoi along the westcoast.

My educational philosophy revolves around prioritising the student as the central figure, ensuring their active involvement, intellectual stimulation, and empowerment in the learning process. I believe that teachers are the most invaluable asset a school can possess, and they should be provided with support, recognition, and motivation. Additionally, I emphasise the significance of strong connections between students, schools, and parents, with a focus on establishing relational trust, as this is crucial for optimal learning outcomes.

I strongly encourage parents and whanau to actively engage in their children's education. It is important to establish a relationship with your child's class teacher, make regular visits to the school, establish connections with the school, and actively participate in school activities. By doing so, you will enhance your child's chances of achieving academic success.
