Welcome

Welcome to Nga Iwi School.

The school opened in 1972 and the name Nga Iwi was chosen after much discussion with local iwi who suggested that "Nga Iwi" should be associated with the words: " People of the land be one."

Our school has always reflected the diverse backgrounds of our community but we are one in that we all have a common purpose in obtaining the best education possible. Our Boards of Trustees have maintained this focus with the emphasis on" securing the future for our children." History and culture are important contexts for learning and for creating that future.

We are actively inclusive and have made space for our preschoolers and their parents.  Our diversity provides many opportunities for learning and understanding the community we represent.

This web site is another way in which we reach out to our community and share information. We welcome your comments and suggestions

Kind Regards,
Heather Hampton
Principal
