Albany Primary School
"Where learning makes a difference..."

Notice Board

  • UPDATE FOR WEEK ENDING FRIDAY 24TH MARCH

    Dear parents and caregivers
    All our thoughts and love are with the families and friends of the children, men and women killed so tragically, injured or involved on Friday at the Christchurch mosques, and to all the people of Christchurch at this time.
    To our own Muslim families at Albany Primary School, we feel your loss and disbelief that this has occurred in Aotearoa, New Zealand. We offer our support and deepest aroha as a community. All staff will be supportive and sensitive to our children’s emotional needs in the coming days. Classes may make acknowledgements to the wonderful support services and agencies involved as well as a school fundraiser.
    As a mark of respect NZEI have notified us that the teacher Union meetings will not go ahead this week, to ensure teachers can focus on children and their needs. Therefore school on Tuesday March 19 will remain open until 2.55 p.m (normal finishing time).
    Waiho i te toipoto, kaua i te toiroaLet us keep close together not far apart
    Regards, Maree Bathurst (Principal),
    Albany Primary School Board of Trustees and Staff

    MESSAGE FROM AUCKLAND TRANSPORT

    https://at.govt.nz/projects-roadworks/safe-speeds-programme/speed-limit-changes-around-auckland/

    As you may already be aware, Auckland Transport wants to make our roads safer by introducing a new bylaw to reduce speed limits on a select number of roads – approximately 10% of Auckland’s local road network. We are dedicated to reducing the number of deaths and injuries on our roads, and these proposed changes will be instrumental in achieving that.

    Not only do we want to make our roads safer, we want to make streets in our communities nicer, more people-friendly places to be – particularly for children walking and cycling to school.

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 modeled and reinforced by the teachers as essential qualities that we all strive for in our learning community.
