Nelson Region Schools / Education

With the lifestyle that Nelson and Tasman offers, it’s only logical that families would desire to live here.

Popular with families?

Yes it is, for example we have the largest camping ground in the Southern Hemisphere at Tahuna Beach, and it fills up most years over the Xmas/New Year break. Testament to the attraction and reputation that our region has for holiday making families I feel. In fact many families re-visit year after year for their annual holidays.

And a great many folk take it to the next step, deciding they like it here so much, that they want to live here.

A great website here offers all you need to know about education options in Nelson, and if there are any further queries feel free to email me or comment.

Education in Nelson

Whats this Decile Information stuff I see in New Zealand?

A school’s Decile indicates the extent to which it draws its students from low socio-economic communities. Decile 1 schools are the 10% of schools with the highest proportion of students from low socio-economic communities. Decile 10 schools are the 10% of schools with the lowest proportion of these students. (Source – Ministry of Education)

You can check out the Decile Rating yourself by downloading one of the revelant spreadsheets here at this page .
