Community and Location

Travelling south from Christchurch on the Main South Road you will be forgiven if you got as far as Rolleston and suddenly realised that you must have passed Weedons - but when and where? Weedons is a district and really of little interest to the casual traveller but for those who call this very progressive area home, Weedons is more than just a name on a map (click here for the history of the area). There are no shops, local hall or the usual pub but Weedons does boast a very popular golf course, several business enterprises, an Air Force Base and a school with a proud reputation as well as established farms and a number of small holding lifestyle blocks.

Weedons School is set in a rural locality, surrounded by farm land. It is situated ten minutes drive from Hornby (the southern most suburb of Christchurch) and five minutes from Rolleston and West Melton. A Decile 10 school, the catchment area is made up predominantly of farms, life style blocks, and agricultural enterprises.

The School is located centrally in the Selwyn District, having easy access to Christchurch’s beaches to the east and to the Ski Fields in the west. There are a number of attractions that can be viewed on the Selwyn District Council website under Selwyn District Attractions.
