Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Island Bay School.

We are a primary school (Year 1-6) on the picturesque south coast of Wellington. When you arrive here at Island Bay, you will have a real sense of place, from the bay to the city. We are committed to giving all students the best education possible.

Our vision for learning to “ Explore, Extend and Empower ” is brought to life by our curriculum that recognises that there are unique realities for the learner that deserve recognition in the design of learning and schooling. We want learning that matters, that makes a difference in learners’ lives, that is creative, connected to meaningful, relevant and deep contexts.

Our Learning

Through an inquiry model, Island Bay School endeavours to integrate all of the learning areas from the New Zealand Curriculum into their teaching and learning. Our curriculum document unpacks what our learning looks like in detail.
