Summerland's whanau pods, at a glance

Our seven whanau pods are a combination of creativity, friendly intra-school rivalry, synergy and a whole heap of passionate, vibrant & enthusiastic students and teachers. Each year we love to mix things up, so each time your student returns to the school year, they'll have a different room, teacher and mini-school.

Other Summerland Rooms

Art Room

Summerland runs a vibrant visual art programme for our primary age students. We have a full time art teacher (Janet Shepherd) who gives learning opportunities to whole class groups and specially selected students groups.



We are open from 8:30am -3:00pm, Monday-Friday. Come and read, explore and dive into your favourite books. Our librarians would love you to come to their Story Time on Friday at 1:00pm. Or, check out the wearable art outfits we have on display.
