Welcome to Stanhope Road School, I am incredibly privileged to be the Principal of this wonderful primary school. We have an amazing group of teachers who are dedicated to providing excellent learning opportunities for our children to ensure they reach their true potential.

Our teachers are supported by our hard-working teacher aides, office staff, landscape gardener and property manager who  help create wonderful learning environments for our children. We are a unified, collaborative team of professionals who are dedicated to celebrating success in all forms, being good Friends, Learners and Guardians. Our Board of Trustees and Parent Support Group are incredibly active and  provide our school with numerous resources to improve the outcomes for our children.

As a school we are very proud of our diverse and multicultural community. At our last Cultural Parade at the end of 2020, there were 65 nations represented. Our families demonstrate a healthy support to the school and work strongly in partnership with the school,  progressing children’s learning goals. Our school vision embodies who we are and our aspirations for our students.

We look forward to your children joining our Stanhope Road School Whanau.

SRS Covid Update 21 September 2021

Tue Sep 21 10:01am

Dear Parents/Caregivers

Yesterday we were informed that the country will be going to Alert level 3 at 11:59pm Tuesday 21st September, as previously agreed in principle. This will be reviewed on Monday 4th October.  This means that we will continue our online learning programme until the school holidays. Although not the end to the term we wished for, we are committed to supporting our students through our online learning and are grateful to our families and the wider Tamaki Makaurau community for their hard work to eliminate Covid in this outbreak! 

Yesterday’’s announcement means that for most of our students they will continue online learning from home. For a very  small number of students, they will be returning to school, where they will be supervised. Those families will have received a separate email last night. A big thank you to all of our families for their support and flexibility in keeping our school bubbles as small as possible. 

Thank you for your ongoing support. It is greatly appreciated.

Ngā mihi  

Zane Wilson                                                                            Principal

Friday 10 September Update

Fri Sep 10 02:28pm

Malo e lelei

A huge Thanks for your ongoing support of our Home Learning programme over the last 18 days, we continue to have high levels of engagement from students and families. We know how difficult it is to juggle Home Learning your own jobs and running busy households. 

Hauora/Well Being is one of our key strategic goals and we have stressed the importance of this throughout this current lockdown. 

As an acknowledgement of the amazing job students, families and classroom teachers have done over the last few weeks, Friday 17th September is a Hauora/Well Being day for students and teachers. 

There will be no contact from teachers on this day and we encourage you to do some fun family activities or just relax  (Please see attached poster for more information.) 

This Monday 13th September we are  hoping to have  more clarity regarding Alert levels and timeframes for  moving down levels, we are certainly hoping for good news.

After this announcement we will send out an update.

Have a great weekend and let’s hope for some sunshine.

Fri Sep 03 05:25pm

Dear Parents & Caregivers

As we end our second full week of Home Learning, I would like to acknowledge the outstanding efforts of my Senior Leadership Team, classroom teachers and all the staff of Stanhope Road School.

Teachers have put in a huge amount of time and work refining their Home Learning programmes from your feedback last year. This has resulted in high levels of engagement from our children with the programme and great feedback.

So a huge Thanks to my resilient teachers and staff, many of whom are also balancing looking after their own children and dealing with the many challenges that Level 4 brings.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge the parents and whanau in our Stanhope Road School community for the great support you have shown in assisting your children’s learning at this challenging time.

Have a great weekend and I hope all the Dad’s have a wonderful Fathers Day on Sunday.

Kia kaha

This afternoon we were informed by the Prime Minister that Alert Level 4 for Auckland will continue until Monday 13th September. We are hopeful after this extension that we will be able to return to school safely.

This extension of Alert Level 4 means that Home Learning will continue. We are very fortunate to have an amazing group of teachers who are there for their students and are providing exceptional learning opportunities.  If you have any questions please remember to contact your child’s teacher. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to Thank you for all the support you have all shown  to our Home Learning programme over the last two weeks, we have had a high level of engagement from our students.

Wed Aug 25 06:41pm

DAFFODIL DAY 2021!  Stanhope Road School prides itself in supporting one of our favourite charities. As such, we have decided that we will hold our 2021 Daffodil Day fundraiser regardless of Alert Level and lockdown status. An online fundraiser, with a virtual yellow dress-up day!

You are able to donate on Kindo for smaller donations, or you can donate any amount onto our Daffodil Day fundraising page: (https://www.daffodilday.org.nz/stanhoperoadschool).

As we are still in lockdown on Friday, we also ask students to wear something yellow to their Friday class Zoom meeting.

We would also love to see photos of our students – wearing yellow, creating daffodil artwork, or actual daffodils! Send them to office@stanhope.school.nz before 3pm for a Friday facebook post, where we will update you on our fundraising total.

Important Covid-19 Alert Level 4 information

Tue Aug 17 07:33pm


Dear Parents/Caregivers

The Prime Minister has announced that New Zealand will be moving to Alert Level 4 from 11:59pm tonight for three days, with Auckland and the Coromandel Peninsula remaining in Alert Level 4 for 7 days. While this is not what any of us wanted, we are hopeful after a short and sharp lockdown we can return to normal learning programmes. 

School is now closed for all students and staff. Our Home Learning programme will  now commence. Classroom teachers will be in contact tomorrow morning, via Seesaw and email, with information regarding the Home Learning Programme. They  are your first point of contact.

Please stay safe and look after your whānau and friends in these unprecedented times.

Kia kaha
