Nau Mai, Haere Mai, Afio Mai, Maliu Mai, Bienvenue, Welcome, Richmond Road School is a unique primary school that celebrates diversity. We work in partnership with families/whānau to ensure that children: love coming to school, challenge themselves in their learning, make and sustain positive relationships with others and are confident in who they are.
Note: Our most recent newsletter has been added to the right under our newsletter bar. There will be a newsletter available fortnightly on a Wednesday.
Happy New Year to all our whānau and tamariki
School opens for the year on Thursday 30th January with our pōwhiri at 9.15am in the hall. If you are being welcomed to Richmond Road School as past of our pōwhiri please come to the school office by 9.00am (our temporary School office is located on Douglas Street). We look forward to seeing you all in a couple of weeks!
The office will be open for a few hours on Tuesday 28th January and Wednesday 30th January from 10.00am-1.00pm.
School donations will be changing slightly in 2020 as there are new guidelines from the Ministry about donations for schools and the inclusivity of activities for our tamariki during the school year. An update for this will be sent to you in the coming week (Jan 20-24 2020). Thank you for your support and your contributions for our donations. We would not be able to operate our school without this contribution from parents.
School Admin Block Refurbishment
Our Admin Block refurbishment is continuing in 2020. The Ministry Of Education, Hampton Jones, MIRO construction, Architects, Board, staff and other stakeholders have been involved in the process to get this up and running since 2016.
The temporary office is on Douglas street. Please follow the signs.

Drop off and pick up of students
We have had some concerns from staff and parents about the drop off and pick up of children. Please ensure you are not double parking or parking illegally when coming to the school to drop off or pick up your child/children. This may cause incidents involving our children and families so please be mindful of others when parking around the school.
Our online school calendar (at the bottom of this page) will be updated regularly and please read the newsletter as this will have updated information. Notify the school office if you are not receiving these.
