Allandale School is a wonderful state primary school sited in the suburb of Kopeopeo, 3km southwest of the Whakatāne township.  The school has approximately 400 students in 18 classrooms. We have four bi-lingual classes ranging from Year 1 to Year 6. We are committed to meeting the diverse learning needs of our children. We have wonderful facilities, including digital literacy programmes, hands-on learning environments, and Te Puna Taiao – our Community Oasis Project. 

Allandale School actively promotes a culture of respect (manaakitanga) and responsibility (kawenga).  Our learning environments are characterised by positive tuakana-teina and
adult-student interactions and relationships (whānaungatanga). Students feel valued and demonstrate confidence and pride in who they are and where they come from.  

Our great teachers love teaching our children.  Allandale School encourages the participation by all children in a wide range of learning experiences within the academic, sporting, cultural and outdoor arena. Our school values what parents, staff and students have to contribute and we welcome parents into an open and caring environment knowing that community input is a most important ingredient in the success of our school.

We promote a safe and healthy environment where students can grow and develop to their full potential. We encourage children to respect the opinions of others and promote an harmonic working environment in which to learn. We constantly encourage students to strive for excellence and together we will continue to cater for the academic, physical and social needs of all pupils.

Allandale School is a fun place to work and learn.

On Friday, the Ministry of Education advised schools that they are going to support schools in providing distance learning opportunities across New Zealand. Their focus for this support will be directed at students participating in NCEA and then moving down to other schools across New Zealand. This support will include providing devices, internet connectivity and hard copy learning packs. As you can imagine, this support will be in high demand so there are no promises. But as a school, we will share our data with the MoE to demonstrate what supports are needed by our school community.
Allandale School staff have already been in touch with many whanau to identify our students who need support to engage in distance learning. This was completed via Seesaw. If a student or students in your whanau require extra support please contact your child’s teacher via Seesaw or send them an email.
