About Allandale School

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.
