It is my absolute pleasure to welcome you to Belfast School.

For over 155 years Belfast School has provided quality primary education for the children of north Christchurch.  In the 21st century this proud tradition continues with highly qualified and committed Teachers and Support Staff, modern curriculum and technology, new learning styles.

Our latest ERO Report (2015) commented that “Students experience a rich and varied curriculum that is highly effective in promoting their learning enjoyment and engagement.  The School’s values foster a positive school culture”. 

It also stated that, “ERO observed examples of high quality teaching in purposeful learning environments where students were engaged and talked about being interested and motivated in their learning.” 

Also, prominence and value is given to the Maori Culture within the school community.  Maori students achieve well in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.”

Our spacious grounds and modern play equipment, combined with our 11 new state of the art classrooms, provide a beautiful and stimulating environment in which the children learn.  The new classrooms include a new ‘specialist room’ for technology and science learning.

As a full primary school (Years 1-8) many opportunities for our pupils are provided in technology, leadership, sports, the Arts and cultural activities such as Kapahaka and Choir.

I warmly invite you to come to the school and meet with me.  I am very happy to show you around our school and answer any questions you may have so you can make an informed choice for your child’s primary education.  I look forward to meeting you.
