Growing curious, lifelong, excited learners

At Edendale we offer a holistic education, delivered through learning in authentic contexts.
The goal is to equip our ākonga across years one to six with 21st century skills and the ability to think about problems critically and creatively.
Learning through play, inquiry learning, specialist kaiako in Music and Art, and our Garden to Table programme combine to deliver a real breadth and depth of learning opportunities for our tamariki. This lets ākonga think, learn, and create in a fun, friendly, inclusive environment with strong community connections.

PTA Disco

Tue Dec 13 01:26pm

Kia ora koutou, we have had some confused children at school about who can come to the PTA disco unaccompanied.

1] This is a PTA run event off the school grounds and the school grounds will be closed from 1:00pm on Thursday for summer.
2] The event is on the reserve and the gate between the school and the reserve will not be open.
3] All children [years 1-6] must be accompanied by an adult at the Disco. Children can not go to the disco unaccompanied.
Please email for more detail.

The front and back school gates will be closed at 1:15pm for the summer.


A reminder from the Friends of Edendale that the End-of-year Disco Picnic is this Thursday (weather permitting) on Edendale Reserve.
We’re still looking for volunteers, if you can help please sign up here. If you’re able to contribute to the bake sale, please bring this with you to the reserve at 1:00pm, or a little earlier if you can.

What to bring:
A picnic blanket
Lots of water
Cash for pizza and bake sale treats
Look forward to seeing you there!

Disco Cancellation – 17 November

Thu Nov 17 12:25pm

Kia ora,

Edendale PTA is very sorry to have to announce that tonight’s school disco is cancelled, due to the met service forecasting heavy showers and possible thunderstorms – the safety of our tamariki is most important.

We are incredibly disappointed to have to make this decision.  We’ll work with the school to look for alternative options for a fun event for the children and share details over the coming days.

In the meantime, we have some fabulous cupcakes and baking that we don’t want to go to waste, so are holding a mini bake sale at school pick up today, please bring coins (and any baking you may have done!) with you.

The mini bake sale will be set up outside the ‘word wall’, next to the hall.

Garden to Table koha table – Thursday, 17 November

Disco – 17 November

Tue Nov 15 01:43pm

The Edendale Spooky Disco is 2 days away!  Please see this quick guide for all you need to know.

We would still love your help with baking and volunteering on the day, plus sponsorship for some of the costs – all volunteers and sponsors will go in a draw to win a 6 week gym membership at Health & Sports!

Please bring cash and your completed permission slips with you to the back gate, Shorwell Street entrance at 5.15pm (use form attached if needed).

Finally, watch out for a notice from the school on Thursday to confirm whether the disco is going ahead as it is outside on the astroturf this year, and we are hoping the rain holds off – if it is too wet we will have to unfortunately cancel.
