Welcome to our school
Welcome to Poroutawhao School. We are a small country school (Years 1-8) with a lot of heart, strong community support, and a focus on modern learning.
When you arrive here at Poroutawhao, you will see a wide-open and green space for the children to play and learn set amongst the backdrop of the Tararua Mountains. We are committed to giving all students the best education possible. More about our approach to learning here.
Established in 1924, Poroutawhao school has been part of the community for nearly 100 years. We have strong community links with the Waitārere Beach community, local iwi Ngāti Huia ki Poroutawhao and the surrounding farming district.
We offer a safe, stress-free environment featuring effective school-wide pastoral care. Our range of outside the classroom activities includes day trips and school camps. Our school sports teams participate in local school sports competitions. We also provide safe and reliable school transport services from Waitārere, Moutua, Levin, and Foxton.
