We aim to communicate and share all of the great things we have going on here at Ara Tū Whakatā.  On this page, you will find links to our Facebook Page, newsletters and Our Journey Blog which is a space for staff to share their learning.


Our school Facebook page is used regularly as a platform for us to share notices, events and updates.  Like our pages to get our notifications.


Our newsletters are sent out electronically and have messages from our principal, student voice, awards recipients, updates and news from around the school.  In 2021, newsletters will be shared here and show the newsletters for the term we are in.

Our Journey @ Gilberthorpe Blog


Gilberthorpe School has seen many changes in recent years.  We continue to grow and work towards being the best we can be.  To reflect and share our experiences, we have created a blog to track our journey. This includes topics such as innovative learning practices, our upcoming building projects, professional learning, success and ideas as well as information from cluster activities.
