Welcome to Mataura School

Kia Ora and Welcome to Term One!

School started for 2018 on 1st February at 8.50am. All students are to be in the new school uniform - it has been compulsory since 1st February 2017.

This year we have a focus on developing literacy and mathematic skills across all areas of the curriculum. We are especially interested in how technology can enable learners to connect to their peers and families. We want learners to have as many opportunities as possible so they become successful readers, writers, and mathematicians! Click on the image below to access Learning at Home resources.

Our school rules are that to be a successful learner you must be respectful, safe, and responsible.

Our school introduced SEESAW - Student Driven Digital Portfolios - in early 2017 and we are continuing to build on this for the future. Seesaw empowers students to independently document their learning, it gives families an immediate and personalised window into their child's school day and makes communication with teachers seamless. Click on the Seesaw logo below to find out more.

We now have a free SCHOOL app. Receive school information instantly and directly to your smartphone. Click below on the School Stream logo to take you to links to download the app.
