St. Leonards Road School has been in operation since 1962. We have a proud, longstanding history of providing an excellent education for the Kelston community.
Our School Vision:
Ma te mohio ka ora, ma te ora ka mohio: Learn To Live, Live to Learn.
At St. Leonards Road school we create opportunities for students to learn how to live and to be life-long learners. Through the practice of AKO, we support our students to be strong in their identify, confident in who they are, connected and actively involved in our school, the Kelston community and as global citizens. Our BEST values underpin all we do.
We are one of seven schools in Te Whānau Mātauranga o Kerehana Kāhui Ako.
As Principal of St. Leonards Road School, it is my privilege to serve our tamariki, their parents, whanau and our wonderfully rich and diverse community. I warmly invite you to look through our website to find out more about our school and Kāhui Ako.
WELCOME TO TERM 3 2020
Our learning focus this term is Imagination and Innovation.
Imagination and Innovation
The children returned to school on the first day of term to discover Moana's waka in our school pool.. Using their imagination and innovation they will draw on their technological and scientific skills to design a new waka for Moana.
Watch this space!
We had a very busy last day of term 2 celebrating Matariki planting Kawa Kawa and other plants to start our Rongoa garden. We were honoured to have our Kaumatua papa Ngaro support our Kapa Haka group who lead this. We would like to acknowledge EcoMatters for their donation of the plants for our Rongoa garden.
ESSENTIAL WORKERS APPRECIATION
Our student council, lead by Hayley, organised an essential workers appreciation day. This was to honour those who worked during lockdown. Thank you cards were delivered around our community and we had some special guests at our assemblies.
