message to prospective parents

We believe in being true to our school motto of ‘lay well thy foundation’, and giving our students the best possible start.

The school places emphasis on providing a balanced curriculum, covering academic, cultural and sporting arenas. We are well down the path to adapting our curriculum to the ‘new’ New Zealand Curriculum standards.

The school places a lot of emphasis in developing a partnership between the school and home in the development of your child, recognising that it is through collaboration that we give children every opportunity to reach his or her potential.

Years 1 to 6 are your child’s most formative years and I firmly believe between Napier Central School’s balanced curriculum and the partnership we nurture between the home and school, we are well poised to ‘lay well thy foundation’ for your child and ensure they realise their individual potential.

Ross McLeod, Principal
