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)

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, service, cultural and sporting pursuits. 

Learners are equipped with the skills, ambition and knowledge to become confident and connected 21st Century citizens.

A true measure of a school is not what its students are doing when they are 18, it is what have they have done when they are 80. 

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.

We believe our students need the education we provide, but more than that, we believe the world needs our students.

Do come and visit us. We’re a busy, happy,  unique community, and you’ll be made very welcome.

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,

Juliet Dickinson
