Albany Primary School
School Introduction

It is a school with a rich history and an exciting future. It prides ourselves on the happy, friendly and safe environment that is evident from the moment you enter their grounds. Learning is not silent at the school but shouts with curiosity and challenge.

Its goal is to ensure that your child is given every opportunity possible to develop and grow through our inclusive and holistic curriculum.

The school's vision "where learning makes a difference" is the foundation for all they do. The values of respect, excellence, aroha and caring, creativity, and honesty (REACH) are modelled and reinforced by the teachers as essential qualities that they all strive for in their learning community.

School Curriculum

Albany School recognises that the enrolment of students from different cultures brings a richness and diversity to the School and the education they offer.

They aim to:

·  promote an exciting and dynamic teaching environment,

·  prepare students for the internationally integrated world, and to

·  develop an international perspective for all of the students.

All international students are encouraged to participate in ELL lessons matched to their needs. The School currently has a special room dedicated to the international students, staffed by a specialist Teacher who works with groups of 6 to 8 children. In addition, children are well supported in their learning by their Class Teachers and Teacher Aides. Their classes are small and progress can be rapid.

To ensure that international students gain the most from their New Zealand education and experience the school provides a buddy and peer support system within the School. Wherever possible, international students are introduced to other children within the class or School who speak their language, thus ensuring the international students always have a friend for support in the classroom or out in the playground, should they have worries or difficulties.
