MERGER NEWS 11TH SEPTEMBER 2013
We are pleased that the Minister of Education, Hekia Parata, has announced her final decision that North New Brighton School, Freeville School and Central New Brighton School will merge at the start of Term 1, 2015.
A letter from the Minister of Education has been sent home today, with your child, with further information regarding the merger.
We are happy the Minister has listened to our submission in regard to not merging our schools within a school year, as she had previously proposed a Term 2, 2014 merger.
We encourage each other to achieve excellence through effort.
North New Brighton School is a place that strives to guide the community's children into becoming future contributors. Using the 5 E's of effective learning the staff take pride in facilitating student's learning and growth to develop the skills and competencies required for a successful education. We achieve this by focussing on core concepts that the students will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
North New Brighton School understands the value of a positive community relationship and openly welcomes all parent and public contact.
Brian Walkinshaw, North New Brighton School Principal
