Nelson Community of Learning 12 schools/centres in the Nelson Region
In alphabetical order:
Auckland Point School, Clifton Terrace School, Hampden Street School, Hira School, Lake Rotoiti School, Nelson Central School, Nelson College, Nelson College for Girls, Nelson Intermediate School, Nelson Tasman Kindergartens, St Josephs and Victory Primary School.
The Nelson CoL’s are part of the Nelson Principals Association (primary). There are only two secondary options in this area: Nelson College for Girls and Nelson College so the pathway for the majority of students in these 9 schools is to one of the two colleges.
The Nelson region has become increasingly culturally diverse, presenting both opportunities and challenges for schools to respond to and effectively engage students in their learning. Diversity is particularly reflected in the increased number of Pacific students, children of refugee families and international students attending local schools. There is some disparity in the achievement levels of Māori and Pasifika students both at primary school and secondary levels and this is an area that schools are generally targeting through data analysis and planning.
