Is French one of the languages in your home? Did your child learn French overseas? Here in New Zealand, sustaining a language other than English is a real challenge. A bilingual education can make all the difference! And bilingualism has so many added benefits…
We recognise that learning in two different languages calls for a tailored teaching approach. We provide a safe and unique learning environment with many advantages within a publicly funded primary school:

What a blessing that my son can be educated in French, my mother tongue. And what a great environment - huge school yard, superb teachers, a caring principal, and great classroom and all-school activities. We are grateful every day. Merci Birkdale North School!
Birkdale North exceeds my expectations. Not only does it provide our kids a safe and stimulating learning environment, it allowed us to meet and be part of an incredibly welcoming and tightly knit community. We feel at home here.
I’m so glad I chose to come to Birkdale North School. Having schooling in French has given my daughter so much more than anything I could have ever taught her at home. I wish I had done it with my first two.
