Glen Massey ROCKs

Welcome to Glen Massey School

Glen Massey is a Grade U3 Decile 5 five classroom school in a village setting situated 9 kilometers from Ngaruawahia. The roll tends to fluctuate around the 100- 105 children mark from about 70 families, 60% of whom are identified as European and 40% as Maori.
There are six teachers, including a deputy principal and principal. In addition there is a part time teacher for students with special needs and abilities. There is a Reading Recovery programme and two teacher aides to support special needs students. A school secretary manages the school office each day, with a cleaner keeping the rooms neat and tidy.

The main building complex has 2 classrooms, office/administration areas, staffroom, toilets, sickbay and storage rooms. In 1993 the Board of Trustees built a fourth classroom which in 2008 was turned into our new school library.   During 1997 a new classroom , was built at the back of the school. A resource room was moved onto the site in early 2003. The new administration area was completed in 2005 and in 2008 the new library was created along with a multi-purpose e-learning room. 2011 sees an additional classroom added to the rear of the library.
There is a hall on the site which is also used for After School Care, two outside storage sheds, an adventure playground, tennis court and a swimming pool, as well as a large playing field. The local play group has a designated area beside the hall for their use. The school grounds are landscaped with attractive trees and shrubs.
