A message from our Principal:

Tena Koutou and warm greetings to you all


The decision of where to enrol your child at school is an important one and I want to thank you for taking the time to consider Dyer Street School as one of your options.


I hope that you will find the information that we have available is helpful and provides some insight into what school life is like at our school.  One piece of advice that I would offer to any prospective school age parent is to visit the school, have a talk with the Principal and get a feel for the place.  Seeing a school in action will be much richer experience than just reading about us on a page.


That said I am happy to boast about my brilliant, committed staff, with a depth of knowledge around student learning that they use to give students a great start to school.  One of the features of our new entrant room is our covered deck area, which is similar to that of a kindergarten or daycare centre, giving students a gentle transition from the relative freedom of early childhood education into the rigours of school life.  If you are joining us with children who are a little older, we offer great learning programmes at any age.


Please feel free to contact the school to make an appointment to come in for a visit, we would be delighted to show you around and answer any questions you might have.
