Every student matters, every moment counts

Kia Ora - Welcome to


Principal’s Welcome

Your enquiries about our school community at West Park School are most welcome. I realise that choosing which school to send your child to, is one of the most significant decisions you will ever make as a parent. The early years of a child’s development shape not only future academic success but also character. Therefore, your child’s/children’s school is something that should be chosen with great care.

We are a medium sized multicultural school in the Wellington Northern Suburbs. Serving the Johnsonville community since 1956 we enjoy a proud history past and an exciting future.
Our dedicated group of staff take pride in the high standards of classroom programmes across the full N.Z. Curriculum range, with special emphasis on Literacy, Numeracy and the use of technology as an enabler of learning.  We encourage a culture where students care for both their environment and each other as they learn to appreciate that each person is special with unique skills and abilities.  We want all of our kids to have the opportunities to become the best that they can be.
We value and encourage parents’ and caregivers’ involvement in class and school activities. As a “learning community” we actively strive to promote an atmosphere where parents and teachers interact positively and constructively as true partners in education.  For working together as a parent and teacher team, we create the very best of opportunities and benefits for each child.
My hope is that you will choose to have a long and enjoyable association with West Park School as we make every effort to provide your child/ children with opportunities to reach his or her potential, by working in an environment that will stimulate a love and passion for learning.
I welcome you to find out more about West Park School by contacting me and making a time to visit and look around.

Quiiz Night Reminder

Wed Jun 29 11:36am

Kia ora koutou,

Reminder that we have our family quiz night happening next week, Wednesday 6th July at 6.30pm. You can get your tickets through KINDO.

Please see the attached poster for more information.

This is a family quiz so the questions will be aimed at children but there will be some curly ones in there for the adults.

There are some really cool prizes to be won, including a whole class prize for the class that has the most participants at the quiz night. So encourage your classmates to come along so you can win some time on the bouncy castle!

Please note: As this will be in the hall adults will need to wear a face mask.

Expression of interest – Family Quiz night at school 29th June 2022

Thu Jun 02 12:18pm

Kia ora koutou,

The home and school committee would love to organise a Family quiz night to be held at school in Week 9 of this term.

We would like to get an idea of numbers so we can plan accordingly and make sure we have space in the hall. For example we may run a junior and a senior quiz separately if we have a lot of people wanting to attend.

We have some awesome prizes for our Tamariki to enjoy. The cost would be $5 per family with funds raised going towards the refurbishment of the hall.

This form will be open until 7th June 2022.


Ngā mihi nui,
