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.

Our School Production
We finished Term 2 with a bang by putting on our school production...
'Where is our Sox?'
The story followed some Stoke School children as they travelled around Nelson looking for the lost school cat, Sox.
We had such a great time performing to our two sell out crowds.
Thanks for supporting us!
We were lucky enough to have the talented Java Dance crew come to perform at our School. They were so talented and had us all on the edge of our seats!
Term 2 is here!
Term 2 is only 9 weeks and we have lots of exciting things to fit in!
Watch this space on news about our school production that will be in Week 8!
