Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! Especially to our community of the school and another special welcome to all that are new to us. Our website is a portal to our Fruitvale School world. We are proud of it, we want you to enjoy and use it often; please come back and visit us. Please let us know if it needs improving. Nau reira, tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa.

The BOT wants you to know, ‘We’re Reorganising for Growth’. Three classrooms, Rooms 5, 6 and 7 have now been moved off our site. You will see a major change in the environment of Fruitvale. To ‘reorganise for growth’, means that we will get new classrooms as our numbers start to climb. We are on that climb. The classrooms we will get in the future will be permanent classrooms; all new, with all new furniture and the latest developments in property design. This can't happen without us moving the old ones off. We hope this is clear to everybody. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have. Please phone or e-mail the Principal (09 827 2752).

  • CONTINUOUS LEARNING - Lifelong Learning! We believe that learning is a journey that never ends.
  • CREATIVE THINKING - We believe in providing a safe and supportive environment that fosters risk-taking, reflection and creative thinking.
  • CARING - We believe in nurturing children's ability to be friendly, caring, tolerant and accepting of differences.

We want to create learners that feel confident, skilled and self-assured because they have the training and attitudes that set them up to be successful in whatever role they fill in their lives.

Students, Parents who want the best... Teachers, and Supporting Staff who are professional and care about your child and their learning needs.
