Whakapau kaha – to be better than before.

My name is Janine Irvine and I am honoured to be the Principal of such an outstanding school. Cornwall Park District School has been a school of excellence since it opened its doors in 1921, and as it moves through the 21st Century it continues to honour its past while embracing the challenges of an ever-changing future.

Our staff are highly committed and talented practitioners who work hard to ensure the students receive the very best opportunities across all the academic, cultural, sporting and social domains. As a school we believe in providing a holistic education where we all assume a shared responsibility to meet the needs of the ‘whole child’.

Cornwall Park District School is a school of opportunities, where students can strive to achieve their potential, while also being provided with a wide range of different opportunities that will hopefully highlight possible talents and passions they can continue to carry throughout their lives.

Being a culturally diverse school, we pride ourselves on being inclusive, a place where all children are recognised and respected for the unique talents they each possess. The facilities we offer are outstanding, with a dedicated music room, an impressive pool, large school hall and modern library. As well as a multipurpose Discovery Centre, outfitted with three kitchens. Every room has up-to-date technology to enhance teaching and the school also employ specialised PE and Music teachers to ensure our students receive the best all-round education.

Our school encourages a strong relationship between home and school and we are privileged to have a school community that is so supportive. We encourage parents to be proactive within the school and to share in their children’s learning as they progress through the school.

So welcome to Cornwall Park District School where we value Tradition, Community, Excellence, Innovation, Integrity and Diversity.
