PAPARANGI SCHOOL

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Paparangi School. Just fifteen minutes from the central city, we have lots of outdoor play spaces and gardens and overlook Seton Nossiter Park and Gully. Paparangi School is a contributing primary school with twelve classes (just over 270 children and growing!).

We are close to the local Kindergarten, Intermediate and College, working together to provide a coherent pathway for learning in the Paparangi/Newlands area.

The Board of Trustees and staff strive to provide a quality education where children can be ‘adventurous learners.’ We are close to the local Intermediate and College, working together to provide a coherent pathway for learning in the Newlands area. I welcome you to Paparangi School on behalf of our tamariki, teachers and community.

Morena Paparangi, food bank collection on Friday, organised by Joe, Y6 student. Donations welcomed – send to school with your tamariki.

Thu Sep 23 11:02am

Dear Paparangi School
For my birthday this year I want to help people who don’t have much money to be able to buy enough food for their family. Last year my friends helped me by bringing food instead of birthday presents to my party and I felt really happy when I dropped off lots of food to the foodbank so I want to do it again this year. Anything like cans of food or fruit, biscuits or muesli bars, chips, potato sticks, pasta, cereal or bags of flour is a good idea.
If you would like to, please bring some food to donate to the Newlands Food Bank to school on Friday 24th September. There will be boxes available at school to put the food in. Thanks to my Mum and Dad who are going to help me deliver the donation to the Foodbank.


Thank you from Joe, Rakau Nui
