About Springdale School

At Springdale staff, parents and whanau work together to provide a safe, exciting and innovative learning environment for all children.

Springdale School is a rural school in the Matamata Piako district. It is situated between the rural towns of Te Aroha and Morrinsville. Hamilton is 45 Kilometres to the west and Auckland is 100kms North. The School was established in 1915 and has created a long history of academic, cultural and sporting achievements. Springdale has worked hard to gain well deserved respect throughout the Matamata Piako District. The tremendous support of all Springdale School families and its’ wider community is what makes Springdale the place to be. The encouragement and friendship they give to the school is reflective of their commitment to actively engage in their children's education, and to support teachers in providing learning opportunities designed to prepare the children of Springdale for a future of endless possibilities.

Our school roll is 50, and we cater for children between the years of 0 – 8. Extensive grounds with cricket pitch, swimming pool, astro turf and extra-large sandpit and playground is a feature of the school which we take advantage of for PE, Education Outside the Classroom and day to day playing. The local tennis club also allow us to utilize their courts. Springdale is a Sun smart school with shade sails over the sandpit and outside Puawai- our children can be seen playing inclusively in and around our beautiful grounds which have plenty of shade trees.

Springdale School is committed to the intent of the New Zealand Curriculum Document: to develop “lifelong learners who are confident and creative, connected, and actively involve.” At Springdale we aim to provide the most effective and engaging teaching possible whilst supporting our children to achieve to the highest of standards; inclusive of our values, academic achievement, social awareness and understanding, emotional intelligence and knowing ourselves as learners.

Everything we do at Springdale is underpinned by our school values

Caring, Honesty, Independence, Perseverance and Teamwork

A school with a VIEW: Helping children achieve a future of endless possibilities.
