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.

Fire alarm in the night

Fri Apr 08 10:19am

Kia Ora 


Last night in the wee small hours the school fire alarm activated itself.


Please accept our apologies – we could not control it as it is an automated system managed by Wormalds and connected to the NZ Fire Service.


Although the Wormald’s technician has not appeared yet, we believe the fault developed during the power outage yesterday when we needed to close the school. It may be a failed or damaged back up battery system as there were a few on-off scenarios with the power as it was restored between 8.30am – 1.00pm yesterday. It will be resolved 🙂


Thank you so much


Murray
