Welcome to the Middle School

The Middle School is made up of 8 Year 3 and 4 composite classes.  We work in a mixture of single cell and modern learning environments.

The Middle School has had an excellent start to 2016. All teachers report their classes to be happy and settled. There are lots of exciting learning opportunities happening this year and we look forward to sharing those with you as the year goes on.

Our Trip to Willowbank
05 November 2014

We had a wonderful visit to Willowbank Wildlife Park.  We fed the eels who were very slippery and slimy.  We looked at the monkeys who were enjoying the sunshine and we loved feeding and patting the baby animals.  We looked at the Maori Village too.

Christchurch Stands Tall Project
17 September 2014


Paparoa Street School is taking part in the Christchurch Stands Tall Schools Programme.
Christchurch Stand Tall is a mass appeal public art project organized by the United Kingdom organization, Wild in Art.  More than 50 giraffes standing at 2.5 metres tall will be painted by local artists and planted in parks, streets and open spaces.  Christchurch schools will decorate another 50 baby giraffes.  During November through to the end of January giraffes will be out on a trail and in shops in town.Our giraffe arrived and we had to carefully unwrap it.  Each class from Year 2 through to Year 6 had one person represent their class and help with the unwrapping.  We've never seen zoo much bubble wrap and corrugated cardboard.
