Welcome to Methven Primary School

Methven Primary School is a decile 9, state contributing co-educational primary school (years 1-6) located near Mt Hutt in Mid Canterbury, New Zealand. We are an exciting and vibrant place for children to do their learning.

Our teachers are committed to providing stimulating learning activities both inside and outside of the classroom. Within our rich and broad curriculum there is a belief that being able to read, write and do maths successfully is at the core of a child’s learning needs.

Underpinning our educational ethos is a common drive to instill a love of lifelong learning within all of our learners. To do this we are increasingly using our local environment and local resources as teaching and learning tools.

Our MPS STARs are at the centre of our Vision for teaching and learning for MPS children. Being Sporting, Trustworthy, Accepting & Responsible are the personal qualities we believe will ensure children learn, work cooperatively and play alongside each other successfully while making pathways to the stars.

I firmly believe that Methven Primary School is a jewel in the crown of our community and hope that you find our website an informative tool to discover and learn about our wonderful school.
