Kia ora and welcome to the Colyton School. It is a privilege to lead such a wonderful school in the heart of a vibrant community. Our school has a friendly environment, high expectations and staff encourage all students to aspire to meet our vision of “creating confident lifelong learners who strive to achieve their personal best”.
Since the doors to Colyton School opened in 1884, our school has had a history of passion and care for education. With a solid foundation of over 130 years, we are steeped in Manawatū history. Today Colyton School is an innovative forward thinking school, giving all of our children the base from which to launch a quest for life long learning.
Our wonderful staff are fully engaged with professional development to ensure that the delivery of the curriculum is current. The Board of Trustees are very supportive and work hard to support the staff in providing a stimulating learning environment. At Colyton School we believe strongly in educating the “whole child”. Aside from the core learning areas, we offer a broad and rich curriculum.
“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”–Malcolm X
