Welcome to our School!
just south of New Zealands historic Mangonui Harbour.
The School started here in 1896 with land being donated
by the Foster family.
When Elwyn Richardson was
the principal in the 1950s and early 1960s, our school
became an experimental school. Elwyn was able to follow
his creative learning programms with the blessing of the
Department of Education and develop a philosphy of
learning that has now become the main stream pedagogy in
many New Zealand schools.
We eneaver to further
build on the strong foundation he laid by providing a
wide range of creative learning opportuities.
