Welcome to our school website. Te Ara Koropiko West spreydon School is focused on student success and achievement. Our values are Attitude, Adventure , Achievement.
Our new school and landscaping have been designed to reflect this. Our facilities are sensational and we are grateful for all of the support we have had to achieve this dream. There are 2 swimming pools, a massive adventure playground, Gaga Dodgeball Pit, sandpit filled with Golden Bay sand, seating and picnic tables, a basketball court and a netball court, and a 2 lane bike track. We own a lot of bikes and scooters so that no child misses out. Our Bluetooth outdoor sound system pumps out the music and our children love to dance. We are so proud of our beautiful school and our place in a caring and supportive community.
We are attachment based and this means we take care to build relationships with our tamariki and their whanau. We know that maturity has nothing to do with age so we have changed our approaches to education to meet the needs of our children.
Our teachers and support staff are committed to being the best, and they are.
We believe that learning needs to be relevant and interesting. We have partnered with 6 other local schools in our Kahukura Community of Practice to develop deep learning, tikanga and new initiatives. We have our own music festival and cultural festival.
Te Ara Koropiko is supported by our Public Health Nurse, Te Mana Ake, RTLB, MOE, Social Worker in Schools and a strong pastoral care team. We have a wonderful team in the community that supports our families whenever the needs arise.
Music, sport, performing and visual arts are very important becasue we know that children can flourish in many areas if they are given the opportunities. We have partnerships with Healthy and Active schools, CrossOver Trust, Origin Sport and our own festival music director. All children are involved with kapa haka and have the opportunity to learn about Aotearoa as a bi-cultural society.
We do have a school zone. Out of zone places are limited.
Take the time to look through the website. I hope that this will give you an insight into our beliefs and aspirations and that when you become a part of our school community, that you will have a sense of belonging and importance.
