Canon Oceania Grants 2020

We are the lucky winner of the community category of the Canon Oceania Grants 2020! The money and equipment that the grant provides will be presented to us in November and will help us to create a 3D model of Broad Bay and the harbour that connects with the oral histories of our local people through QR codes. Thank you very much to everyone who voted, and to Canon NZ!


We have enjoyed hearing from members of the community who are keen to contribute to our project in a variety of ways. Our project is scheduled to get properly underway at the beginning of next year, but we are ready to start collecting stories and resources now. If you have something to share with us, we'd love to hear from you. Please get in touch using this this simple-to-use online form (preferred) or email

I liked how the school felt like a big family and offered many opportunities for learning new skills including sailing and skiing.

Broad Bay is such an awesome school and it has so many amazing opportunities to offer. Being in a class with a variety of year levels is a really good experience and the small size of Broad Bay means you get more of an individual focus from the teachers to develop your learning. I definitely wouldn’t have made any other choice for my primary and intermediate school education.

I enjoyed my time at Broad Bay School because of the friendly community and the tight friendships you build.
