Welcome to Albany Primary School. We are a school with a rich history and an exciting future. We pride ourselves on the happy, friendly and safe environment that is evident from the moment you enter our grounds. Learning is not silent at our school but shouts with curiosity and challenge.

Our goal is to ensure that your child is given every opportunity possible to develop and grow through our inclusive and holistic curriculum.

The school's vision "where learning makes a difference" is the foundation for all we do.

Our values of respect, excellence, aroha and caring, creativity, and honesty (REACH) are modelled and reinforced by the teachers as essential qualities that we all strive for in our learning community.

Our school has been invited to host The Incredible Years Parenting Programme beginning in February next year. As you will see by the attached brochure this parent support programme is endorsed (and funded) by the Ministry of Education and run by qualified facilitators. The strategies and techniques provided will support any parent with children age 3- 8 years. Evaluations show that it significantly improves parent-child interactions. Further information closer to the time.

If you are interested in playing Basketball for the School in 2017, please complete the attached forms and return to the school Office via email or during Office hours.  Registrations are taken on a first served basis ONLY at the School Office where they will be date stamped or via EMAIL, where we can note the date and time sent.  Teams are limited in numbers and we are only able to enter a certain number of teams per competition.  This is an expression of interest to gain a place to trial.

Payment will be required before the trial.  All children who have been successful in a place to trial will receive an email early in 2017.

Thank you - Ms Ryder
