School Description
Lynmore School (Te Kura o Owhatiura) was established in 1956. It is a popular primary school in Rotorua catering for children from Year 0 ­Year
6. There is a school bus for children living at the Lake Okareka and Lake Tarawera but most children either walk or are driven to school each
day. The school has an enrolment zone, in 2018 the roll is predicted to range between 630–700.
Most children attend an early childhood centre before starting at Lynmore School and there are several in the area from which parents
choose from. When children leave Lynmore School at the end of year 6 children most attend the local intermediate (Mokoia). Lynmore is
part of the Rotorua East Community of Learners and has been proactive in being a pilot school for PACT maths in December 2014 and will
continue to use PaCT in reading, writing and maths for all students as our main summative assessment tool. We are pleased to see the
progress aspect of PaCT being further developed. Michael Absolum and Therese Ford–Cartwright will again work with the school/Kahui Ako
as expert partners in 2018.
The establishment of whanau groups in 2015 to enable more opportunities for tuakana teina and student leadership was successful. 2018 will
see a focus on developing school leaders among our Year 6 students. The FISH Philosophy of interacting with our community, students and
colleagues has been adopted and is currently being revised into a Te Reo version. PB4L will be central to much of our PLD for 2018 and the
school has also employed a full time Kaiawhena to support Tikanga and Te Reo Maori across the school. Discovery learning is being
undertaken in Year 0­1 and teachers are involved in inquiry around its development. The school continues to focus on Future Focussed
Learning and is undergoing a curriculum redraft with thinking, creativity, science at the centre.
Lynmore School has a range of property provision but there is currently not enough adequate quality classroom space available to students
and staff. There are 29 classroom spaces 11 of which are permanent, 18 of which are old prefabs. of the 18 prefabs 12 are currently damp
and very poorly maintained as they are at the end of their life, being installed on the school grounds in the 1960’s and 1970’s. The school has
a school hall with mezzanine floor and multi purpose room, a heated swimming pool, an administration block, a library/resource centre,
purpose built gymnasium, BoT funded Cultural Centre for music and dance and a variety of outside storage areas. The school grounds are
attractive and well maintained. They include a native bush area called Waitawa bush which children can use for environmental studies and
which also contains a pump bike track. The school has a focus on health and sport, dance, swimming and cultural activities.
