    Thumbs up New Zealand Schools Database

    Hi,

    I've put together a new section on the website which lists nearly every school in the whole of New Zealand, and gives you a good overview of them.

    Details include:

    Name
    Address
    Phone/Fax Numbers
    Email
    Decile Rating

    Plus other regional information.

    You can find it here: http://www.movetonz.org/new-zealand-schools.php

    Thanks for that, what would we do without you and Motherbear. Had a quick peek but will have to save it until we decide where we want to go.

    Something else that forum members will find of use are the Education Review Office reports. These are reports on the mandatory 3-year inspections of school.

    If anyone finds the education-ese in the reports, please feel free to pm me and I'll be happy to help you out. (I'm a teacher and school administrator by profession.)

    Hi,

    Just in the middle of shifting the site to a new home, so not everything has caught up yet :) Should be back on soon though...

    Default NZ Schools on a map, with search options

    This may help too: We are doing the school research as well, (hope to be there by Christmas 2008). I applied some time into converting the excellent Ministry of Education list of schools, into a Google Map. You can choose a region of NZ, decile range and some other features, then see a map with the schools marked.

    Map of New Zealand showing schools

    Click on a marker for some more info and possibly a school web site.

    Addresses of some schools were vague but I located them with some patience.

    I enjoyed building this, but I hope it is useful to others as well.

    Tried EOI route Jan 2008, failed.
