About Us

At Poroutawhao School we offer:
  • Modern 21st Century learning.
  • A safe, stress free environment featuring effective school wide pastoral care.
  • Safe, reliable school transport services from Waitarere, Moutua, Levin and Foxton.
  • A range of Education Outside the Classroom activities including day trips and school camps.
  • School sports teams which participate in local school sports competitions.
  • Close ties with local iwi - Ngati Huia.
  • Community links encouraging interaction amongst families.
  • A wide range of extra curricular activities
With 6 teachers and between 130 - 140 students we are small enough for all of our teachers to get to know students across the school 

Established in 1924, Poroutawhao school has been part of the community for over 90 years.  We have strong community links with the Waitarere Beach community, Ngati Huia ki Poroutawhao and the surrounding farming district. 

We are very proud of our school and the opportunities we offer.
