Welcome everyone to our school
Te Kura Tuatahi o Tāhuna
Queenstown Primary School
Queenstown Primary School is located in central Queenstown, within a short walk to the shops and restaurants and within close proximity to exciting events and outdoor activities. We are located under the Skyline gondola and across the road from our local sports ground, Memorial Park. We are committed to delivering a high quality and balanced education in a breathtakingly beautiful setting. The name of our school translates to; The First School in Queenstown.
My personal congratulations to you all for taking the first step to being an important part of our school – Queenstown Primary School. We are very excited to share the unique ‘flavour’ of our school. This means, we are renowned within the Wakatipu region as an EOTC (Education Outside the Classroom) school. Our students have many opportunities to participate in unique activities based on a strong outdoor education focus. These include camping, skiing, ice skating, tramping, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding and various outdoor camps.
We recognise students’ diverse abilities, interests and ethnicities and aim to provide a wide-ranging programme that will meet all of their needs; academically, socially and physically. We provide an inclusive community and embrace Nga Hau e Wha by welcoming families worldwide.
I am proud to say that our best resource is our staff. All of our staff are appointed to positions because they are caring, committed and energetic professionals who frequently go beyond the expectation to ensure our students are successfully developing their progressional pathway to be the best they can be.
Being approachable is something we pride ourselves on. We encourage and welcome parents/whanau and community agencies to share in the learning of their children and our future leaders. Learning partnerships between home and school are paramount to the success of our students.
