Welcome to

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 eleven classes (just over 230 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.
