Why Parents Choose KingsGate


"My son comes home and acts out the knowledge he has gained and his spiritual formation is nurtured and affirmed by the staff and the other children." 

"My daughter comes home and teaches me Te reo Maori songs and words and Christian songs too. I love learning with her!" 

Colbie, our Years 5 and 6 Speech Winner. July 2020

"Its Christian values are clearly visible in their curriculum and all communications. We see our child growing more with God through their presence at KingsGate" 

"My son came home and told me how much he loves his new school because his teachers and the children are kind." 

Tyla, our Years 7 and 8 Speech Winner. July 2020

"Our girls take personal ownership of the SERVE values. KingsGate is concerned about shaping their character as well as their academic success." 

"The curriculum is taught to the highest standards and they use Biblical examples to teach the children the fruits of the spirit."

Our Future


Dear Friends

 

The Board Chair, Principal, CEO and others attended a dawn blessing on site at Blake Rd on the 25th of January. This was a time of prayer and thanksgiving to God and honouring those who have cared for the land in the past. It was a special time for all concerned. This means that the groundworks for the new school are now underway.

Graduate Profile


Unlike a mission or vision statement, a graduate profile for us is an illustration that we use to specify the spiritual, cognitive, personal, and interpersonal competencies that students should have when they graduate. 

 

The KingsGate graduate profile was co-created with input from key stakeholders and provides a clear visualization of priority goals for teaching and learning. The graduate profile is easily communicated to students, parents, staff and board of trustees and can be used to align our collective efforts.

 

 


Teacher Profile


Being a teacher at KingsGate School is a privilege and an honour. KingsGate School teachers are charged with providing a unique education for our students.  Teachers deliver the New Zealand Curriculum through a Biblical world-view framework whereby all teaching and learning strategies are found within the teaching of Christ our Lord.  They approach each child’s learning journey holistically ensuring that they provide an environment where their students emotional, academic and spiritual needs are met to the fullest extent possible. It takes a special person to be a KingsGate School teacher and as such we choose teachers who actively display the traits in the KingsGate School Teacher profile illustration.
