Welcome to Birkdale North School!

We are a vibrant and diverse public primary school in the suburb of Birkdale on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand, located just a few minutes from the Harbour Bridge.

As well as several mainstream classrooms and our bilingual French and English unit, l’Étoile du Nord, the school also runs a bilingual Te Reo Māori and English unit, Ngā Muka, enhancing your children’s experience by exposing them to Māori culture. We also host two satellite classes of Wairau Valley School, catering for special-needs children.

We have large playing fields to run around, a hall for school and community gatherings and a swimming pool. Feel free to come for a walk around anytime.
