Advice around personal safety in public We have recently seen some incidents where suspicious individuals have been reported approaching school students in public. Some of these reports have been found to not be suspicious, but others remain concerning. With this in mind, it is timely to provide some advice to students who are walking to or from school, or in public areas at other times. With all of this considered though, we still live in one of the safest countries in the world, and we still want our young people to be able to walk freely to and from school
Royal Oak Primary School
A sincere and warm welcome to Royal Oak Primary School’s website and to our inclusive and friendly school. We have a beautiful school with a history of over 75 years. We enjoy a reputation for very good academic outcomes, a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and a committed and caring multi-cultural community.
Our vision is Manaaki, Whakaute, Whakamana “Care, Respect, Empower”. Our mission statement “Creating a broad range of opportunities for curious, critical thinkers who continue to learn and make a difference in their world” is also practised and catered for in all school operations and events.
We have two teaching teams. The Royal Acorns (Year 0 to 3) and the Royal Oaks (Years 4 to 6). We have a strong support team working with our students who require special educational programmes. This is a feature of our inclusive school. In addition we provide English specialisation for children who speak English as their second language.
Children are provided with authentic, playful learning programmes with regular use of IT to challenge and extend. Our specialist music teacher ensures outstanding music throughout the school and our string programme is second to none. A range of sporting and fitness programmes are available. Environmental Science and STEM programmes are also a feature of the school. Children learn both Te Reo and Mandarin from Year 2 and up.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and welcome your involvement in our school life.
