Setting children on a path of lifelong learning.

Poipoia ā tātou tamariki ki te hīkoi i te ara o te mātauranga mō ake tonu atu


Kia Ora whānau,

As we move to Level 3 at 11.59pm on Tuesday 21st September - Sylvia Park School remains closed for onsite, face to face learning. At Alert Level 3, you legally must stay within your household bubble unless for essential personal movement.

We will continue to support your child/ren's learning from home with our distance learning programme, SPS Connect.

While we know how difficult it is trying to work from home as well as support your child’s learning, please keep your child at home if there is an appropriate carer available. For those of you with no other option, if you have not already, please contact your class teacher to let us know and we will look forward to seeing your child at school WEDNESDAY 22nd SEPTEMBER. Our onsite school hours will be from 8.45am to 2.30pm. Your child needs to be in school uniform and come with their chromebook, own drink bottle, morning tea and lunch.

Thank you for continuing to support our community in keeping healthy and keeping safe, but the mahi isn’t yet done. As you have been doing, please continue to follow all the alert level requirements at Alert Level 3 and stay at home where possible. It is the best tool we have to keep our whānau and community safe.

Kia haumaru, kia manawanui,

Ngā mihi,
Whaea Dagmar

Our School and Community Vision

When students leave Sylvia Park School we would like them to…

  • Achieve at or above national norms in literacy and numeracy to maximise all learning.
  • Demonstrate initiative to contribute positively within a changing society.
  • Be confident in their own identity.
  • Show resilience and flexibility to overcome challenges.
  • Maintain effective relationships based on tolerance, respect and honesty within a diverse community. 

Welcome to Sylvia Park School

Tēnā koutou katoa

Thanks for dropping by our website. I hope you have a chance to trawl through it and get a sense of what life is like here at our beautiful school. 

Sylvia Park School school is full of the finest children, staff and whānau that I have ever had the privilege to work with, and learn alongside. It makes turning up to work each day a joy.

We never fail to get excited about the things we can achieve as a collective that we would never be able to achieve alone. Each term we ask big questions that we all work together to try and answer. We call this our school-wide inquiry. We challenge ourselves to answer the question in a way that is real and meaningful. At the end of every term you will see our students applying the learning they have undertaken in real and meaningful ways. We love to see as many of our whānau taking part throughout our school-wide inquiry.

Myself, and all of the staff, are always more than happy to meet with you to discuss, celebrate and share the needs and achievements of your children so please don’t ever hesitate to approach any of us. 

Barbara Ala'alatoa - Principal
