Congratulations to our students and teachers - on Friday we were awarded our Silver Enviro School status! Super reflection day with our students sharing our journey with two Auckland Council Enviro-Schools Educators. Thanks Miss Nicholas and Mrs Louisson for your leadership. Below shows the journey our students took to reaching silver via our tweets.
Pakuranga Heights School caters for children from new entrants up to year 6 and reflects Pakuranga’s multi-cultural community. We are extremely proud of the safe, caring, family environment our school provides. The school has a proud tradition of being a focal point in the community and has always enjoyed a high level of community involvement.
The Pakuranga Heights School learning community strives to instil in each of our students a life-long commitment to learning and provide a nurturing environment in which our students can achieve their academic, physical, cultural and social potential, for the greater good and in service to others. By providing our students with an array of opportunities inside and outside the classroom, we encourage them to not only explore and recognise the diversity of their talents and abilities but to develop essential leadership skills.
Pakuranga Heights School is proud to provide a learning environment that is dedicated to meeting their specific needs. We are fortunate at this school to have excellent and dedicated staff who work hard to support and encourage their students. The school community is strong and works closely with parents to obtain the best outcomes for their children. We believe we enrol the family, not just the student, and work closely in partnership to obtain the best possible outcomes.
At Pakuranga Heights Primary School we strive to help your child to be the best they can be. The knowledge they gain, the values they adopt and the friends they make during their school years will play an important role in shaping their future.
