Welcome to

TE AROHA
PRIMARY SCHOOL

Educating children for their futures, today

Welcome to Te Aroha Primary School where children from Year 1 to 8 are challenged to be the best that they can be in an inclusive learning environment.

Situated in the heart of Te Aroha and nestled under the mountain on a 4.6 hectare campus, our children have a sense of belonging, pride and are valued in their cultural heritage.

We always encourage our children “To Accept The Challenge” which is our school motto. This is the challenge to learn, to explore, to have a go at new opportunities and to have fun.

We invite you to join us on this journey.

Parent survey

Mon Sep 12 04:37pm

Kia ora parents and whānau, some of you will remember that I attempted to conduct a parent survey with you in early Term 2. However the survey didn’t work on a phone and only a small number of you were able to complete it. I have been working on it and I am happy to report that I now have a version that is easy to do and is completely mobile friendly. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey (even if you did it last term). If you need access to wifi, pop in here and you can use our guest wifi. We would like 100% return on this if possible. It is easy and quick…thank you for your time and cooperation on this…very much appreciated.

Bring a drink.


Have a warm jacket or school polar fleece for while they are waiting. 


Parents must stay in their designated spectators space (on the opposite side from where the students will be seated), this is to make sure the track stays clear, and so that students do not miss their races.

Parents may take their children home once ALL of the races have been completed. Please let their class teachers know. 

Cross Country Tomorrow!

Mon Aug 15 08:37pm

School Cross Country is tomorrow (the 16th August 2022). Children are to arrive in school uniform and will change into their house colours or other suitable running gear before heading up to the top field.

12 and over


5 years


6 years


7 years


Non Competitive


8 years

Please do not ask what time your child’s race will be as we have no way of knowing. It all depends on how long the race in front takes to run and what the weather is like on the day. 

No children are permitted to leave before the end of the whole event ie: the finish of the last race. Then children are free to go once you have spoken with the class teacher.


Adults will be seated in the area by the concrete ramp. Please do not go over to where your child is sitting as this makes crowd control difficult.


If it is wet we will try to run it on Thursday 18th August.

Learning Conversations Term 3 2022

Fri Jul 08 03:24pm

Kia ora parents and whānau.


Our ‘Learning Conversations’ are coming up in Term 3, Wednesday 3 August. We are doing things differently this year. We have made the decision to roll these out over an entire day rather than over a few afternoons and evenings as had been done in the past.


The reason for this change is to provide the widest possible range of times for parents and whānau to meet with teachers. 


We want EVERY child in the school to have a learning conversation that day. Our preference is for the conversation to be in person, however in exceptional circumstances we can make provision for a zoom meeting or a telephone call. 


We appreciate that for a small number of families this may cause an unmanageable situation re: child care for the day. In this instance we will have our learning assistants onsite for the day and they will supervise those children in a classroom. For those children who do attend, their programme for the day will not be a normal school day programme, instead we will organize some alternative activities for them to do.


This is not an unusual approach to learning conversations with a number of schools trialing this approach. We will keep an open mind and review after the event.


We look forward to meeting with you all.Ngā mihi nui,Attached is the link to book your conversations with your child / children’s teachers.
