Welcome to Kahutara School

Kahutara School is a state, co-educational full primary school. The school was established in 1898 and many descendants of the foundation school are pupils today. The school celebrated its centenary in 1998, and a historical book ‘On the Right Side of the River’, reflecting some of the school’s history, is available in the school library or purchased from the school office.

We are a rural school with great heart. Set in picturesque grounds with mature oak trees, we believe we have a very special environment to support your child’s learning journey.

Our goal – high achievement for every child while maintaining our warm family environment.
Our mission – dynamic education for all in a rural setting.
