Kia Ora, greetings, nĭ hăo, namaste, talofa lava

Welcome to Meadowbank Schoool.

Meadowbank School has a very long and solid reputation as being one of Auckland’s leading, highest achieving schools. Our large scale combined with our beautiful school setting gives Meadowbank its unique ability to provide a huge array of opportunities for our very capable students.

I started as Principal in 2019, and it is a privilege to lead a thriving school that not only has high quality classroom teaching but a wide range of well-established specialist enrichment programmes such as Garden to Table, Mandarin, Performing Arts, Physical Education and Coding and Robotics.

We have an exceptional team of teachers and support staff who work hard to build a strong partnership between home and school. We acknowledge that success comes from a solid and harmonious home school relationship. As such, we operate an open door policy. You will find our teachers approachable and always willing to discuss yours child’s progress. During school hours (8.30am – 3.30pm) their focus is on the students so we ask that if you wish to discuss a specific matter with any of your child’s teachers, send a note or e mail to make an appointment.

Our Senior Leaders and I like to spend as much time as we can out in the playground and in classes. If you see us around please feel free to stop us and say hi.

Meadowbank School has an ambitious vision and an embedded culture of high expectations. We take our role as educators very seriously and know that we are growing the leaders and influential citizens of the future.

We trust that this website will provide you with some valuable information about our school. If you would like to know more you are most welcome to pop into school and meet one of our staff and have a look around.

We truly wish to make Meadowbank too good to miss.
