Welcome to Roslyn School

We are a full primary school catering for students from New Entrants to Year 8. We are a multicultural school located at the northern end of Palmerston North in the Roslyn area bordering Kelvin Grove. This year the roll begins with approximately 360 students and we will most likely end the year with just over 400 students.

We are very fortunate to have numerous classrooms, together with a large school hall, Jnr & Snr Kitchens, a Music Suite, an Art Studio, An awesome room for our 'Cafe 5' - Alternative small group learning room and a 'STEAM' Suite. We also have extensive gardens around our kura, we recently designed and developed with our tamariki a native garden area as another space for outdoor learning called 'Ngā Taonga o Tane', we also have a fabulous school vege garden and mini orchard.

Our learning is undertaken through our 'Roslyn Investigators' where students learning is lead by their interests and skills. We offer a variety of opportunities both in and out of the classroom to develop the whole child for future successes.


We believe that all students should have the same opportunities and not be disadvantaged by costs.

Although Roslyn School already supplies:

Chrome books for every Y5-8 student
(ratio of 1:2 for Year
3-4 students in He Kākano Team)

No charges for additional programmes and the like

The Board would like to support our families further with...

No school donation requests

No cost for stationary

No cost for trips or sports fees

We are always looking at ways and means to provide the best opportunities and experiences for our students and by undertaking this
'No fees-No Costs' approach again for 2021 we hope our students will not be disadvantaged in any way from their learning, opportunities and experiences. Of course, we would appreciate any support, either financially or by volunteering your skills and time to support our
wonderful students on their learning journey. We do as much fundraising throughout the year as possible without it becoming a burden on our families and look forward to your support. If you are interested in helping with organising these types of events we welcome you to join our Roslyn Supporters Club.

We look forward to having you as part of the Roslyn School hapori (community) in 2021 and look forward
to the exciting developments to come.

We also welcome our new Principal in 2021 - Mr Sam Bradnock, Nau Mai, Haere Mai. It is going to be a very exciting year for all, with lots of new projects and we look forward to you all joining in and connecting with us again.
