Equipping learners to explore and thrive together

Nau mai, haere mai ki te pae tukutuku o Marae Roa o Khandallah.

Welcome to Cashmere Avenue School and our website. We are a primary school in Khandallah, situated in the northern suburbs of Wellington, 

New Zealand, Aotearoa.

Principal's Welcome

Nau mai, haere mai.

Have you ever worked in an environment that enthralled you so much, you forgot it was a place of ‘work’?  Everyday, this is my privilege.  

Our children are curious.  They remind us that learning can start with a question and lead to a rich inquiry.  Our children want to connect ideas, discuss and problem solve. They are explorers inspired by teachers who create powerful learning opportunities and respectful classroom cultures.  Cashmere Avenue teachers inquire into our approaches to learning who broaden children’s values and capabilities. With a stunning outlook to the Wellington harbour, Cashmere Avenue is a hub in our community.  It has years of stories, plenty of heart and a great deal of pride.  

To many of our people here and gone before, this place is a taonga but then again, I’d say the people are the treasure of our school.  

May you feel welcomed to navigate through our website and understand our beliefs for education.
