WELCOME TO BROAD BAY SCHOOL
The little school with a big heart
Haere mai ki te Kura o Whakaohorahi!
If you have children in Years 1–8, or a 4-year-old bursting with energy, you might be wondering about the local schooling options. We encourage you to call in and have a look at our exciting teaching and learning programmes in action.
3D Map and History Project
Thank you very much to Canon NZ for the funding and equipment provided for this project through the Canon Oceania Grants 2020! We will create a 3D model of Broad Bay and the harbour that connects with the oral histories of our local people through QR codes. If you are an ex-pupil or have other local history 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank Creative New Zealand for the funding we have been awarded in their recent Creative Communities funding round, administered by the DCC. The funding received will allow us to hold workshops in which artists from Waitati Whakairo will explore with our students the cultural and natural features and values of our local area and community and how these might be represented visually. These workshops will form part of our 3D map and history project. We also thank the Bendigo Valley Foundation for the funding they have provided to support our school swimming programme.
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.
