Kelburn Normal School is at the heart of the village of Kelburn.
A community that has long embraced the power of learning. The school has a strong history of lifting student achievement via the Arts. Our role as a normal school continues today where we provide innovative and supportive coaching for New Zealand’s next generation of teachers.
The world of creativity is at our fingertips and we at KNS recognise the place that music, drama, visual art, dance and digital media play in providing child centred ways to explore creativity. From individual music tuition with our 10 specialist teachers through play and drama to Shakespeare productions, we offer many opportunities for students to develop their creative language potential.
KNS has a supportive and close knit community that supports teaching and learning. We encourage you to visit KNS to see our school in action and see what our school has to offer your child.
