Welcome to the Stoke School Website
Stoke School, situated in Stoke, Nelson, is a state funded, co-educational, contributing school catering for children from Year 0 to Year 6. We have 10 teaching staff who are well supported by ancillary staff.
Our Vision at Stoke School is for students to be confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners through our values expressed in “We’re Stoked: Whanau, Excellence, Respect, Energy, Seeking, Thinking, Opportunities, Kia tu tonu, E-Learning, Diversity"
We are proud of our growing cultural diversity with 35% of our students of Maori descent, 6% Pacific Island, five ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) students and the remaining students New Zealand Europeans.
We are well supported by the community. Parents become involved willingly in the classroom, and at sporting, cultural and social activities involving the children. We have an active PTA fundraising group and a very proactive Board of Trustees.
We have extensive grounds with ample shade for the Nelson sun and fantastic facilities thanks to the generous support from our fundraising team, local charities, and the Canterbury Community Trust.

The sun was shining
the sunscreen was flowing
we hopped in the bus
and our excitement was growing!
We played in the sun,
surf and sand
and played fun games
it was grand!
