Yaldhurst Model Primary and Intermediate School provides a high quality education in a stimulating and supportive kiwi country environment. Our school is a thriving learning community where we are all Heroes. We learn about, and practise, being Healthy Individuals, Enthusiastic Learners, Responsible Citizens and Open-minded Explorers.


No one is lost in the crowd at Yaldhurst Model Primary and Intermediate School. Our dedicated teaching and support staff know the needs and abilities of all of our students and we work together as a community to teach and support them. Our students are taught to set academic, cultural and sporting goals, use thinking tools and a range of e-learning technologies so they become self-managing life long learners.


Detailed and easy to understand assessment results are regularly presented to whanau in comprehensive student portfolios. At Yaldhurst Model Primary and Intermediate School our students are 'learning for life' in an environment of high expectations and consistent support.


Being a Primary and Intermediate school means that we are able to nurture and challenge our students from Year 0 to Year 8. Our Year 7 and 8 intermediate students are encouraged to take up leadership roles throughout the school. As a result our intermediate students take on a real ownership of responsibilities and so they thrive as leaders.
