Welcome to Norsewood & Districts' School

We have a proud history of achievement, sporting success and community involvement.  We have a strong focus on Literacy and Mathematics, as well as providing many opportunities for our children to participate in sporting and cultural activities.

Norsewood and Districts is a rural, co-educational, full primary school with students drawn from the catchment area of Te Uri, Ormondville, Whetukura, Makotuku, Matamau and Norsewood districts. We are situated approximately 20 kilometres North of Dannevirke in a dairy, beef and sheep farming area.

Norsewood School was established in 1873 and became a merged school in 2004. The school has a proud Scandinavian heritage and participates in Norway Constitution Day celebrations each year.

Teacher Only Day
15 Jul 2024

Kia Ora Norsewood & Districts Whanau

 I hope you are all enjoying the time your children and we can't wait to see them next week.  It was in the last newsletter, but I wanted to remind parents that Friday August 2nd is a Teacher Only Day.  This is so  staff can work with the Ministry on our Positive Behaviour 4 Learning (PB4L) programme. 

Notices will go out on Monday for Whanau Meetings in week two. 

Enjoy the rest of your week.
