Welcome Bay is a decile 4 contributing primary school with a roll of approximately 300 and growing. It is nestled in the growing community of beautiful Welcome Bay in the Tauranga area.
Our children are the school’s most valuable resource. At Welcome Bay we strive to provide opportunities that will enable our students to become the best that they can be, to help them to ‘fly’ in their lives and learning. We celebrate the achievements of our students – both past and present. We work in partnership with parents and community to assist our students to grow within a caring and family focused environment. To do this we offer a dynamic and hard working staff who are committed to providing meaningful learning opportunities. There is an emphasis placed on literacy and numeracy with remaining subjects being taught through an integrated and holistic approach. Our curriculum places an increasing emphasis on higher order thinking and problem solving. In short we aim to build life long learners – not school time learners.
