NPS Facilities

Our New Buildings - Currently Under Construction

On the 4 August 2016 Hon Nikki Kaye and Hon Dr. Jonathan Coleman announced the start of our building project. Special acknowledgement needs to go to past and current Board of Trustee members and our amazing FONS team. Thank you all for being such a supportive school community. Your patience is greatly appreciated and your generous contributions have helped to make this building project a reality.


Northcote Primary School was established on the Lake Road/Onewa Road site in 1918. Since this time many buildings have been replaced and extensively remodeled. We are currently in the process of redeveloping a new teaching block and administration area. The school has three existing classroom blocks and a number of other purpose built facilities on site.

School Hall

Our spacious hall provides a venue for the school to gather together to celebrate our learning, as well as a location for some of our fundraising events. There is an attached kitchen and adjoined space we refer to as the Music Room. Both the hall and the music room are available for hire. For further information contact the school office.

Swimming Pool

There is a covered, heated swimming pool at the school, which is used for swimming lessons as part of our Physical Education curriculum. Even when the weather outside is poor, this is a great place for our students to learn and have fun throughout the year. Helen's School of Swimming also uses this facility for after-school lessons and coaching and this continues throughout the school holidays.


Classes have weekly library sessions and regular borrowing from our large collection of books is encouraged. Books need to be returned or renewed every two weeks. Our spacious library is currently also home to our Administration staff while our building projects move forwards, but remains fully operational for our students.
