A message from our Board of Trustees:

September 3rd 2018
Dear parents and caregivers
The Board of Trustees at Newlands Intermediate has determined that there are no places available for students out of our school zone in 2019.
The school has experienced very strong roll growth over the past two years and until extra teaching spaces are provided by the ministry we will have to restrict the number of out of zone students we can accept.
Please note that students living within our school zone are eligible to enrol at all times.
My best wishes for your child's schooling in 2019.
Yours sincerely
Susie Ellis
Board of Trustees Chair



Identifying who you are and what you stand for is a challenging but satisfying exercise. We have worked with a local company Flightdec in recent months discussing our school identity and what we can use to showcase our school to the world!

Over the next year we will all see a few subtle changes I hope. The uniform has been re-designed, we have a new logo, and a new website and next year even a change of colour palette throughout the school buildings.

The logo is at top of this page and represents the tree that has been growing in our courtyard since the school was built in 1977 – ti kouka – the cabbage tree. This tree is a symbol of resilience, growth, strong heart and national identity.

This tree is set within a hexagon which not only represents our bees but also symbolises for us strength, community, togetherness and collective achievement. We identified a few other icons that we believe reflects our culture, our vision and our values. We would love to know what you think too.



Where we come from, citizenship.


Vibrant, physical, diversity, curious.


Communication, collaboration, working together, collective achievement.

Ti kouka

Resilience, compassion, diversity.



Between primary and secondary, composure, integrity.


Growth, creativity and innovative thinking.

Three Baskets of Knowledge 

Lifelong learning.


Strength, community, togetherness and collective achievement.
