Welcome to our school website. St Albans Primary School is in the suburb of St Albans, Christchurch, NZ. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Construction of new learning spaces

Our flexible learning environments and modernised hall are taking shape.

Congratulations to our Head Students for 2017: Head Girl - Eve, Head Boy - Neo, Deputy Head Girl - Eden, Deputy Head Boy - McKenzie and Kaihautu - Tawera

Extending Experiences

We involve our learners in a range of experiences that enable them to explore many areas of the curriculum.

Tuakana Teina

Tuakana/teina refers to the relationship between an older (tuakana) person and a younger (teina) person. Our older children mentor our younger ones (the tuakana has the knowledge and content to pass on to the teina).

Te Tikanga Rua Reo

We offer Māori and English bilingual education.

Education Outside the Classroom

Rich and authentic learning opportunities outside the school setting.

Thurs: Aquagym for Y1/2. Good luck to our rep swimmers participating in the Canterbury Swimming Sports. We welcome visitors from Redcliffs School. Newsletter day. Traffic woes around Sheppard Place - please avoid this entrance.
