Welcome from the Principal
Kia ora and welcome to the Broadfield School whanau. We are a proud rural school with a vibrant, enthusiastic and caring family atmosphere.
At Broadfield we focus on the key learning areas of literacy and numeracy. We provide a wide range of rich learning activities and experiences for our tamariki. We believe in teaching children values and how to be an upstanding citizen. We encourage responsibility and self-discipline and we set and maintain high expectations for our learners.
The first years at school are vital in setting up a successful future for your child. Instilling self-belief and a ‘can do’ attitude will help your child/ren persevere even when they find new challenges difficult. We like to discover the children’s individual strengths and nurture these by providing exciting opportunities and extra-curricular activities.
At Broadfield our children have a true sense of belonging. You can expect to see the senior students interacting and helping the younger students around the school. Your child not only has their teacher as a guide and support to learning, but also the other staff members have a shared pastoral approach.
As a school we believe learning is a partnership between the child, parent/caregiver and the teacher. We all want the best for our child/ren and we must work together to achieve this. The best advice I can give you is to get involved in the school. The more you put into the school, the more you will get out of the Broadfield experience.
Enjoy your time with us to discover, learn, excel and grow.
