Kiwitahi is a rural school located in the dairy farming heartland of the Matamata-Piako District. We provide a quality, adventurous, traditional education for our pupils which reflects our local, rural community. Kiwitahi looks like a school but feels like a home.

When you visit our school, you will see that our buildings are in excellent condition and are kept tidy to reflect the care we take in providing the best environment for our pupils. Our school is ideally located in a beautiful spot, nestled upon a hill overlooking surrounding farmland. There is ample room for children to play and explore, with a large adventure playground, an astro turf and a heated swimming pool.

We aim to develop children through our six school values: perseverance, respect, responsibility, compassion, cooperation and friendship. We place a high importance on a rigorous and engaging learning programme, good manners and positive behaviour.
