Woodlands School caters for children in Years 1 to 8. It is located in a beautiful rural area close to Opotiki in the eastern Bay of Plenty. We currently have around 100 students at our school.
The school is well supported by an active parent and whānau group that contributes generous resourcing through fundraising efforts, valued assistance and contributions to school programmes, events and activities.
Woodlands School’s special features; - We are a Positive Behaviour 4 Learning (PB4L) school. This means we teach students social skills and our expectations around behaviour are clear and consistent. - An individualised new entrant transition programme. We will work with parents/whanau to develop a transition programme that suits individual needs. - We have a leadership programme for Year 7/8 students with a focus on community citizenship. - New entrant students are delegated a senior school support buddy.
