Welcome to Dairy Flat School.
Dairy Flat is a rural haven close to Auckland, where our families can enjoy the freedom of space and feel connected to the country. The school greatly benefits from strong support from our community.
Our school aims to “provide the best possible learning experiences and environment to facilitate students to become lifelong learners who strive for excellence, value diversity, think creatively and care for themselves and others.” We believe that ‘everyone can become a powerful learner, in a supportive, connected learning environment based on respect for each other and reflective practices.’
Dairy Flat School has a long and proud tradition. The school was established in 1878, and from old accounts of the district, Dairy Flat had a predecessor, Pukeatua School, which had a roll of twenty. The school has certainly progressed from its early beginning and now proudly offers excellent learning and teaching. We are responsive to the community and the needs of the children. Our Vision is predicated on four concepts - Excellence, Caring, Diversity and Creativity.
Research shows that effective teaching is one of the most important influences on student achievement. By gathering and analysing achievement information, teachers are able to focus on the learning needs of their students both in the classroom and for the school as a whole. Teaching becomes more focused on making a difference and achievement rises.
Curriculum delivery at Dairy Flat recognises that each child has their own individual talents, their own dignity, motivation and ways of learning, for year 0 to year 6 students.
Several factors combine to make Dairy Flat a wonderful learning environment:
•We have teachers committed to providing the very best education for our students.
•We have students who care for each other.
•We have staff who strive for success.
•We have spacious grounds with excellent facilities.
We think our students are awesome.
