Welcome to Te Huruhi School

Te Huruhi is a contributing school of years 1 to 6 which opened in 1986.

We are proud of our school and of the children from whom we expect high standards of conduct and appearance and their best effort in social, cultural and academic activities.

The staff remains committed to excellence in all fields of student learning.

Our school environment is one of the most attractive in New Zealand, bordering on Huruhi Bay with ocean views, a large playground, swimming pool, all-purpose hall with attractive landscaping and plantings.

We have an active parents group who run creative school dances and events, support school trips and camps and work closely with school management in supporting and nurturing our children.

We welcome children in Years 1-6.  As our school has no zone, children from any part of Waiheke are eligible to attend.

The school is an integral part of Waiheke’s close-knit community and hosts events in the school hall and offers its swimming pool to the public during the summer.
