Our School

“Students enjoy coming to school and appreciate the high levels of support they receive from the principal and teachers. In classrooms ERO observed high levels of student on-task learning and engagement.” (ERO, 2015)

Kiwitahi is a small rural school situated ten minutes drive south east of Morrinsville in the Waikato district.

We provide a quality 21st Century education for our 30 - 40 students and we pride ourselves on the friendly, family orientated environment at our school.  
Our experienced staff include a teaching principal, a full time teacher, two part time teachers, an office administrator, cleaner and volunteer family members who help read with our students. The school is well supported by the local community and has excellent facilities including a large heated pool, astroturf, adventure playground, sandpit, library, offices and 3 brilliant classrooms. We pride ourselves on our strong community values and have many opportunities throughout the year for parents to be involved with the school. Our students have many opportunities to have a rich and deep education at Kiwitahi School. We regularly attend educational trips outside of the classroom and bring in experts to give direct learning to our students.
