Knights Stream School – Looking to the past to shape the future

Knights Stream School welcomed its first students in February 2019. The school was established in response to population growth in and around the Knights Stream Park subdivision. The area continues to grow rapidly and there are now community facilities and a thriving township nearby. Knights Stream Park was originally wetlands and it still has swales connecting its green spaces. 

Knights Stream School’s establishment Board of Trustees recognised the importance of looking to the past to inform the school’s vision and shape its future. The establishment Board of Trustees was appointed in 2017 and worked together with Te Taumutu Rūnanga to develop the school’s vision and values.
