We welcome visits from other education centres

At Ngatea Primary School we challenge and redefine how we facilitate learning, and how our students become leaders of their own learning in a collaborative, open learning environment.

Thank you for your interest in visiting us, and we welcome any educators who wish to pay us a visit.  More recently, due to the amount of interest we have had and the number of requests, we have restricted our visits to a specific day every week. This is also to minimise the disruptions for students and staff.  

Visits will be hosted as listed on the form below.  Please see the full programme for the day below. 

A monetary koha would be much appreciated, and this will be put towards staff release.

We look forward to hosting you and sharing our thinking behind our Vision, Strategic Plan and learning programmes.
