South Featherston School Principal’s Message

    Welcome to South Featherston School’s learning community!

    "Creative, independent, knowledgeable lifelong learners"

    Our primary focus is to ensure that each and every child has a sense of belonging and is valued as an individual.  Our school strives to promote a caring, family culture where the educational needs of all our learners are nurtured.  We are a small rural school but this does not mean that our learners miss out on the opportunities they might otherwise have at a larger school.  We offer choices and opportunities that enable learners to have a go at a range of experiences in order to learn new skills, extend their knowledge and challenge themselves.

    We acknowledge the importance of knowing each and every learner, and actively promote the vital connection between home and school.  We develop strong learning partnerships with all our parents, whanau and carers to ensure a safe, nurturing school environment and progressive educational programme.  We set challenging but achievable goals for all our learners and work alongside them and their whanau to enable success.

    We invite you to visit our school to see if we are the 'best fit' for your child!
