Naumai haere mai 

and a very warm 

WELCOME to Rhode Street School

Hamilton's Whānau School.

We are located in the southwestern Hamilton suburb of Dinsdale

Our beautiful school was established in 1959 on Ngaati Maahanga whenua and to this day, continues to deliver effective learning and matauranga for our amazing Year 0 to Year 8 ākonga.

Rhode Street School has developed as a centre of learning for our wider whānau community, where it is widely recognised as innovative and ecologically sustainable through our localised curriculum delivery.

We welcome you to our kura whānau and trust you will come and visit us soon to see how we "haere I te korero or walk the talk" when it comes to ākonga agency, whānau engagement, and kaiako efficacy. 

2023 Rhode Street School has adopted a Cohort entry system

Cohort entry is when new entrants (5-year-olds) start school in groups throughout the year rather than on their fifth birthday. In schools that have adopted a policy of cohort entry, new entrants are able to start school in cohorts but only after they have turned five. There are two entry points per term, one on the first day of term, and one at a mid-point during a term
