Our School Vision

Together/Ngātahi - Aspire/Manawanui - Succeed/Tutukitanga

Welcome to our school website and thank you for taking the time to find out a bit about our wonderful school. Northcote Primary School (NPS) was established on its Lake Road / Onewa Road site, in 1918. We celebrated our Centenary in September 2018. In mid 2018 we opened a new two-level classroom block and office space and also a new Administration building.

We have a very dedicated staff who show a genuine commitment to their work and the NPS students. We utilise an inquiry learning approach which provides real-life learning opportunities to our students.

NPS is supported by a hardworking and skilful Board of Trustees (BOT) and our parent PTA known as Friends of Northcote School (FONS). FONS provide support, by developing a community focus that includes family activities and funding / promoting projects. Our attractive site has extensive grounds, playing surfaces / structures and mature trees that all add much to the daily life of the School.

Feel free to contact the office and make a time to come in to meet us if you are not already a member of our wider school community.
