Te Kowhai School - To Be Our Very Best

Welcome to Te Kowhai School

Hello and welcome,

Te Kowhai School is a very special place. Take a look around our website and learn about our fabulous school, great teachers and of course our fantastic kids!


We are a thriving school in the heart of the community, catering for the needs of many students. 

Our school is forward thinking and focused on quality. Our most recent Education Review Office report highlighted the high quality of teaching in our classrooms, leadership, and governance. (see the report under Information Central/Parents)


At Te Kowhai, we want everyone to be their very best. We are a close-knit school and children feel they are known and supported by staff and each other. Students at Te Kowhai feel safe and enjoy the friendly nature of our school.

Te Kowhai School is a great place for children to learn. We offer a wide range of additional activities to enable students to experience new ideas and opportunities – in leadership, academic, cultural and sporting pursuits. 

Incredible support from our parents and businesses ensure that our students receive a remarkable array of opportunities, plus also benefit from extensive resources and support programmes.

Visitors are welcome at Te Kowhai anytime. Feel free to contact me if you ever have any queries, or alternatively I would be very happy to show you around our fantastic school.


Kind Regards,


Tony Grey 
Principal
