Principals Welcome

Tēnā koutou katoa, nau mai haere mai ki te kura o Pillans Point! Welcome to Pillans Point School. As the Principal, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all students and whānau.

Our school is a vibrant and nurturing learning community where every learner is encouraged to grow and develop to their full potential. We believe that every child has unique strengths and abilities, and our dedicated team of educators are committed to providing a learning environment that fosters these strengths and supports each student's individual needs.

At Pillans Point School, we believe that education is about much more than just academic achievement. We aim to provide a holistic education that includes opportunities for creativity, physical activity, and personal growth. Our school offers a wide range of extracurricular activities that help learners develop their passions and interests and embraces the developmental stages of each child.

At our kura, we encourage students to take risks and explore new challenges, both inside and outside of the classroom. We believe that by fostering a sense of adventure in our students, we are helping them to develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed in life.

We also believe in the importance of building strong relationships within our school community. Our staff work closely with parents and caregivers to create a supportive network that helps students succeed. We value open communication and encourage parents to be involved in their child's education.

I am honoured to lead such a wonderful school community, and I look forward to working with you to support the growth and development of your child. Thank you for choosing Pillans Point School as your partner in education.


Ngā mihi nui,

Jacq Price

Community Pool Use



Pillans Point School views the school pool as a resource for the community, outside of school hours.  Each summer, the school sells pool access to members of our school community via the PalGate app.

In return, we ask that families using the pool respect it and use it as if it was their own pool in their backyard. 




The pool will be able to be used on weekends during Term 4 of 2022 and Term 1 of 2023. This is due to after school sports practices in the pool. 

During the holidays, the pool will be able to be used Monday - Sunday. 

Pool Hours:  

8am - 8pm on Weekends and Holidays

4:30pm to 8pm on School days (allows uninterrupted time for sport teams)

*please note these are strict times and your app will be set for the above. You will not have access to the pool outside of these hours.


For Health and Safety reasons, there will be a maximum of 75 Pool accesses sold to the community.


Start of Season - Saturday 3rd December 2022

End of Season - 5 April 2023


Cost - $100




Our school pool has 24/7 security camera coverage that we will use in the case of misuse of the pool area. 

Pool access will be through the use of the PalGate App. Once you have registered and paid for pool access by completing the form below; you will be emailed instructions on how to download & use the PalGate app.  * The app is locked to your phone number, so please choose the most commonly used device at signup.  One device per pool payment.

Once you have downloaded and set the app up; you will have access to the pool.

The app will only work if you are 1m or less away from the pool gate.

Due to the elimination of physical keys; we no longer need to charge a bond and the cost for pool access is now $100 for the season.

Please ensure if you are the last person in the pool that you put the cover back on. This can be done by one person, but works best with two people.  This helps us keep costs down, keeping in the warmth and reducing the need for excess chemicals.

Feet First

Will you partner with us to reduce after school traffic? The Tauranga City Council are fielding complaints about our school traffic! Alongside this, as a school we want to keep kids safe. Pillans Point School is growing. Our after school traffic problem, will only get better, if we are all committed to making some changes. 

Pillans Point School are working with the Tauranga City Council and NZ Police to develop healthy habits, that will also reduce our traffic problems. All children have attended either Reuben the Road Safety Bear, or Dan the Puppet Man regarding road safety. The Year 1 to Year 4 children have also had practical road crossing lessons from the NZ Police. 

This is an incentives based programme to get kids walking, scootering, biking, or park 'n' striding to school. Park 'n' stride is to reduce the traffic at the turn around by parking at least 500m away from the school e.g. Countdown, Rutherford Park, or along Pillans Road. Children will walk to your agreed location after school. 

For your children to get involved in this programme they need to ask their teacher for a Feet First card. Then everytime they walk, scooter, bike or park 'n' stride they tell their teacher and get their card stamped.  After receiving a certain number of stamps they will be rewarded with bag tags.


2019-2022 Re-developments

In the May 2017 Budget the National Government approved $5M to Pillans Point School to support the redevelopment of the school due to its significant roll growth. 

To ensure that our school site was protected for the future growth and development, a site Master Plan was created that updated all services and then proposed the best plan for redeveloping our site. 

As at May 2019, the master plan is completed and Stage One & Two of the project are in conceptual design phase. 

The image below shows the main stages of the project, what is happening and where.
