We have a modern, digital computer suite that contains 32 desktop PC's which are all internet capable. We have an emphasis at all class levels in Information Communication Technology (I.C.T.), and are proud to have been one of the original 23 I.C.T. Lead Schools selected nationally by the Ministry of Education in Wellington. We have been a sponsored COMPAQ NZ I.C.T. Lead School and held this status for the maximum period of 3 years. I.C.T. continues to be integrated in all areas of the curriculum.

Year 1 – 4 classes have access to school supplied iPads to enhance and support their learning.
Year 5 – 8 classes have access to school supplied iPads and a range of netbooks and laptops to enhance and support their learning.
Library/Resource and Copy Centre
We have a well resourced library with books and many other resources catering for students at all levels
Years 0 through 8. The library is the hub of our literacy programme, along with the teacher and student reading resources stored in the
Resource and Copy Centre which is attached to our library. This facility also contains numerous computers which form the "Information Centre" portion of our school's library. The library is open to students every lunchtime.
We have a quality fully fenced astro turfed court area which includes 3 x tennis courts, 2 x netball courts and 1 x basketball court. This is a very popular play area for students (and staff) during recess and lunchtimes and is also used extensively during our physical education / sports programmes involving all students of all ages. We are particularly proud of this facility as it also doubles as a mini-hockey turf for our hockey players to practice their skills and team patterns, but it can also be used for inter-school hockey fixtures.
We have 3 adventure playgrounds for junior, middle and senior pupils. There is also a large covered sandpit for junior students. The junior playground has a soft pad base, the large middle playground includes a mini flying fox and the senior Burma Trail has 3x levels to cater for senior students at different levels of ability and confidence.
