Allandale School is a wonderful state primary school sited in the suburb of Kopeopeo, 3km southwest of the Whakatāne township.  The school has approximately 420 students in 20 classrooms. We have three 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 an e-learning programme which provides Chromebooks to all of our Year 5 and 6 students. 

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.

This year, we are re-introducing School Houses back to Allandale School! This is intended to be a fun, team-building initiative that helps encourage positive behaviour and active participation in school events. All students will be able to earn house points by demonstrating our Allandale Kinds and participating in school events such as cross country, athletics, and cultural performances.

Of course, to help motivate us all, there is an element of competition to our School Houses. The House trophy will be awarded each term to the House with the most points. We will also hold termly House events and competitions such as Tug-o-War, Spelling bees and other fun activities.

Students have all been placed into a House. Their House will remain the same during their entire schooling at Allandale. We have also placed siblings into the same House. This enables whānau to dress up in House colours and actively support their children also.

We are launching our School Houses with our first event on Thursday 30th of May, starting at 11.30am. Students are asked to wear their House colours to school on this day in celebration. There will be prizes (extra house points) awarded for the best dressed and the House with the most colour. Please support your child’s active participation in this launch and you are most welcome to join us in launching our School Houses.

Our School House names and colours are detailed below. A pānui will be coming home with your child(ren) this week which highlights their House.
