Principal’s Welcome

Te ara ki mātauranga | The pathway to learning

We are a small U1 rural school with traditional values and authentic learning experiences. We have a well-maintained environment with three warm, modern classrooms and an attached administration area. We have a well-resourced library, a swimming pool, changing rooms and several storage sheds. Our school has vegetable gardens, an orchard and a big playground.

We have high expectations for all our students, and we work with them to ensure they exceed their potential and experience success. We aim to provide programmes that are fun and challenging, where foundation skills are nurtured, and teaching is high quality.

At Arapohue we value respect/whakaute, caring/manaakitanga, excellence/hiringa and integrity/ngākau tapatahi and we actively teach and encourage staff and students to demonstrate these values.

We believe that your child’s education is a partnership between whānau, school and the child. Good communication between all three of these stakeholders is essential for success. We encourage you to become fully involved in all aspects of school life as well as supporting and encouraging your child with their learning. If at any time you have any concerns about your child(ren), please contact the school immediately and we will do our best to help.

If you have any questions regarding our school, feel free to contact me.
