Kia Ora and Greetings
Welcome to the Gladstone School website.
Gladstone School was first established in 1876. It is a full rural primary for students from Year 1 to Year 8. Gladstone School provides a safe learning environment where students participate in a range of quality learning experiences. We are very proud of our environment and the resources that we have to offer.
Our school currently draws students from the surrounding rural areas of Gladstone including: Longbush, Te Whiti, Te Wharau, Ponatahi, Ahiaruhe, Maungaraki and a smaller number of out of zone students from Masterton and Carterton, (both situated 15 kilometres away). Our school receives very strong community support.
Gladstone School thanks everyone who supported our ‘Scarecrows Big Day Out’ on Saturday 7th of November 2015. The Big Day Out included the Scarecrow Fair starting at 9.30am, Scarecrow Scamper, Scarecrows on the Gobbler and more. To view the video of this event click here.

Out of Zone Enrolments
The Board of Trustees is opening up a small number of ‘Out Of Zone Enrolment’ places in 2016. Should you be interested in gaining further information about this please contact me.
Teachers have changed the classrooms they are working out of for the start of 2016 due to future building work that is going to occur later in the year. Class teachers will be phoning school families about this before the start of term.
2016 Stationery Lists
Stationery can be purchased through the school office on the first day of term and added to school family accounts. Class teachers will assist students with this on the first day of term. Alternatively families may choose to purchase their own stationery before school starts, as per the class stationery lists found here.
We welcome all families to our school community and look forward to seeing you throughout the year.
