Nau Mai Haere Mai and welcome to Woodlands Park School

Woodlands Park School is situated in a beautiful bush-clad valley adjacent to Scenic Drive in the Waitakere Ranges of West Auckland. There is a strong friendly, vibrant community feeling that identifies closely with the school, which is the focal point of Woodlands Park.

Woodlands Park School nurtures the development of our 400 students through the values and Maori principles of;

  • Manaakitanga (showing care, kindness and respect)
  • Whanaungatanga (positive relationships and family connections creating sense of belonging)
  • Kaitiakitanga (connecting with our identity, culture and environment)
  • Rangatiratanga (Leadership through understanding ourselves and our impact on others)

Our staff are committed to building strong relationships with our children through valuing individuality, identity and culture; we believe this is pivotal to creating a strong sense of belonging and essential to nurturing self-esteem and overall well-being. When this is in place, it creates a natural flow of relaxed learning and happiness leading to success. Our school has an excellent reputation for ongoing academic success, supporting and caring for children with additional needs and our commitment to caring for the environment.

Dame Whina Cooper encapsulates so accurately what we aspire to throughout our children’s six year educational journey at Woodlands Park School;

“Take care of our children, take care of what they hear, take care of what they see, take care of what they feel, for how the children grow, so will be the shape of Aotearoa..”

We look forward to welcoming you to our school and sharing with you our passion for excellence in all that we do.

Nga Mihi nui,

Ngaria Stephenson
