Our Admissions

We welcome children from outside our zone.


MISSION STATEMENT - “To provide opportunities for all students to develop attitudes, skills, and knowledge to be lifelong learners


Poroutawhao School is a full primary state school. The roll fluctuates between 115 and 130 students. We operate four multi-level classes from Year 0 to Year 8. There are six permanent teaching positions, including a Deputy Principal. The staff also includes a permanent part-time Office Manager, three part-time Teacher Aides, a Caretaker, and a Cleaner.


Poroutawhao School has almost three times the area of other schools per student so there is no shortage of space  for students to learn and play.

The school's catchment area includes the surrounding district from Moutua-Foxton to the north, State Highway 1/Kawiu Road to the south, including the settlement of Poroutawhao, and west to Waitārere Beach.

We welcome students from outside this area. This is in accordance with the Ministry of Education's enrolment scheme guidelines.
