Welcome. Kia ora. Talofa lava. Malo e lelei.

Rowley Avenue School is proudly bilingual and multi-cultural. We are a very inclusive community that celebrates diversity by being responsive to meet the needs of each learner. We encourage our learners to embrace their own culture and language and be proud of their identity. We offer our students the opportunity to be creative, innovative and collaborative in a safe learning community environment.

“It takes a village to raise a child”

“Māori achieving success as Māori”

We are a special character school where we offer a Māori bilingual learning environment and a Samoan bilingual learning environment up to year 8. We also offer English medium learning environments from years 1-6.

Our recent 2014 ERO report (click here) commented that our school motto of ‘Learning Together in Harmony’ is “clearly evident in the supportive relationships and positive attitudes”.

If you are new to the area or considering enrolling your child/children to our school we welcome you, and hope you enjoy our warm, open approach and become involved in the vibrant life of our learning environment. You are welcome at any time into your child’s learning environment. Children are our most precious taonga – treasures, and at (RAS) Rowley Avenue school we develop genuine home-school partnerships to work together to provide the very best in education and well-being outcomes for our young tamariki/tamaiti.
