Re-confirming Woodhill School Start Date - 8.30am Tuesday, 7th February

Kia ora e ngā whānau

The Secretary of Education has reviewed the Direction which closed Auckland schools until Tuesday, 7th February due to the State of Emergency in Auckland. This afternoon, she has lifted this Direction and is returning the decision to School Boards should they decide to return to school this week.

The decision to lift the Direction was based on information from Waka Kotahi, who provide input to the Auckland Emergency Management Team. Although some roads will remain closed across Auckland for several days for repairs to continue, there are higher levels of confidence in the weather settling and water draining more quickly than expected. 

Although schools may now decide to reopen this week, after considering this, our school has decided to maintain our start date as Tuesday, 7th February for Woodhill School tamariki. It is expected that the majority of Auckland schools will also return next Tuesday.

Greetings to all families

Welcome to Woodhill. We are situated between Helensville and Waimauku on the outskirts of Auckland.  Our families enjoy the advantages of our beautiful rural environment, while having the opportunities of the city on our doorstep.

At Woodhill we support our children to ‘Care, Learn and Grow’ to the highest standards. All students have access to a broad curriculum that enhances their strengths and meets their needs. Students enjoy learning and progressing at their own level in our small classes. Our children have high levels of curiosity and enjoy inquiring about the world around them. 

Communication is a strength of the school and there are close relationships between students, parents and teachers, who engage together daily.   

We are very proud of our confident students who achieve academic success, have a strong sense of identity, excellent communication skills, and perform well across the arts and in sports.

Our children are supported by passionate staff, supportive families and a dedicated Board of Trustees.  Whānau are fully involved in school life: helping in and around the school, supporting students' learning, coaching and managing sports, and attending trips and events.  We are also well supported by local iwi, Ngati Whatua o Kaipara and Whiti te ra o Reweti Marae.

If you would like to find out more about Woodhill School, please get in touch with us.  You will find information about enrolment and transitions in the FAQ page on this website.  We look forward to meeting you.
