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.
