Learning, Caring, Leading

Kia Ako, Kia Atawhai, Kia Arahi


Welcome to Parkview

A very warm welcome to Parkview Pārua School 

Our vision is to foster a passion for lifelong learning in every student. This is a values driven process which is centred around the values of relationships/whanaungatanga, belonging/manaakitanga, learning/ako and collaborating together/mahi tahi. We have a well resourced school with a wide range of exciting learning opportunities that will challenge and grow every student. 

Our school website is intended to describe our community focussed school, what happens here, our hopes and expectations, and ways in which you can become involved in the life of our lovely school. I look forward to working together, so feel free to contact or come in and visit me, my door is always open to you.  

Warm regards,
Simon Thomas
