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.

In term one we had the opportunity to have parent interviews and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to our whānau talk and share they knowledge about their children.

In term 2 we provided all our whānau with a written report about their child/children. While these reports looked a bit different they give us an opportunity to share all the wonderful steps your children have made in a challenging term.

Early in term 3 we are organising to have another parent interview opportunity where we can celebrate our children's successes and the progress our children have made.

We will be sharing dates asap and we will also be using the same on line booking programme to make it easier for you all.

Please remember that if you are unable to attend these days and evenings our teachers are more than happy to make other arrangements to suit your whānau.
