Brooklyn School is a rural, family-oriented, full primary school of 5 classes (Year 0 – Year 8). Roll projections are set to maintain U3 status over coming years.
The school is located 7km west of Motueka at the foot of the Brooklyn Valley serving children from families involved in local horticulture and agriculture and also from Motueka township. Access is provided via 2 school buses which are owned by the school. One serves the Ministry of Education run which includes Westbank Road and Brooklyn Valley, whilst the other serves Riwaka and Motueka township.
The grounds and buildings are a source of pride to the community and continued development has seen the addition of new classroom, and playground areas as well as an upgraded car park and hard court surfaces. Most recently we have had our Junior classroom completely refurbished along with our Middle School rooms and these spaces now reflect vibrant, modern learning environments.
A strong school ethic is prevalent and the ‘Brooklyn Learner’ has been defined as ‘Sharing, Curious and Active’. Children can frequently be heard verbalising these values to new pupils.
The community is very supportive of the school and well represented by a committed Board of Trustees. Come and visit us anytime!
