We are a full primary, multicultural school catering for students from New Entrants to Year 8 located at the northern end of Palmerston North in the Roslyn suburb bordering Kelvin Grove. This year our roll begins with approximately 360 students and we will likely end the year with just over 400 students.
We are very fortunate to have numerous classrooms, together with a large school hall, junior and senior kitchens, a Music Suite, and an Art Studio. We have extensive gardens around our kura, with a fabulous school vegetable garden and mini orchard. In 2021 we received our 'Silver Award' as an Enviro School which was fantastic. We are always on the lookout for people who may be able to volunteer some time helping to maintain our gardens and supporting our 'Eco Warriors' in maintaining these areas too. We have a terrific Learning Coach who dedicates a few afternoons to these areas, who we know would welcome the support and help. If you are interested please contact the school office.
We have started exploring a new model for learning & delivering the curriculum to our ākonga using an Integrated Curriculum approach 'Rarangahia ngā Whenu'.
We offer a variety of opportunities both in and out of the classroom to develop the whole child for future successes.
Upcoming Projects 2023
These are exciting times at Roslyn School.
Hopefully in 2023 work will finally commence on the renovations of a new learning space, transforming Rooms 5 & 6 towards the end of the year. The architectural design for this space is next level and we are really looking forward to seeing the next stage from the design process: from seeing it on paper to watching the plan come alive this year.
This year we will also complete the update and repaint of our admin and office areas. Aim to also commence planning of our outdoor learning areas and new decks which will span from Room 8 -13.
Exciting times ahead!
