Welcome to Glendene School
Tenā koutou, talofa lava, ni sa bula vinaka, namaste, fakalofa lahi atu, mālo e lelei, As-Salaam-Alaikum and welcome to Glendene School. Our dedicated team is ready to work together with your tamariki/tamaiti and whānau/aiga/family to make your child’s time at school happy and successful.
Our school vision is together, Glendene School and its community will empower our children with knowledge, confidence and opportunities to achieve our best always.
We strive to give Glendene School students many rich learning experiences during their time at Glendene School. You are their first teachers so we always begin by finding out who our students and their whānau/aiga/family are. If you have skills and talents you want to share with the children or to enrich our school/kura, please contact us.
We begin every year by learning about each other and our place - Ko Wai Au/Ko Wai Mātou/O ai a’u/O ai matou/what makes me happy. Our first hui/fono/meeting of the year is at Cornwallis Beach where whānau and staff have the opportunity to get to know each other through talanoa/talking.
We encourage you to come in and get to know us and what we do. In 2024 our learning for term 1 will be embedding our school values of look after yourself, look after others, look after our place. Our learning theme this year will be The Wind/Te Hau.
We have learning hui with students, teachers and parents twice a year where we talanoa about how our ākonga/learners are progressing. We have a short midyear report at mid-year and a longer written report at the end of the year. We also have other learning celebrations during the year where you can come in and see your children’s learning in action.
Please note there will be NO school fees in 2024.
We trust that your time at with Glendene School will be an enjoyable one. We welcome you to you to the Glendene School whanau/aiga/family.
