Websites for kids

Throughout our school website you will find suggested weblinks to assist you with your child's learning. Students will need to log in to access  any links on their classroom page.

The links below are all educational sites which focus on a wider range of curriculum areas and interests.

The majority of the links were suggested in 'New Zealand Interface' magazine, which supports the use of ICT in learning.  

Web content can change overtime, however at the time of publishing content on each site was checked by a staff member and deemed appropriate.
