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

Latest Notices

Sausage Sizzle - Tomorrow
15 Feb 2024

A friendly reminder about the sausage sizzle lunch on offer tomorrow.  $2 for a sausage in bread with sauce, $1 for a piece of baking c/- our senior students who are fundraising towards their bi-annual camp.

If your child would like to order, they need to bring the correct money in a named envelope with the order on it, there will be a basket on my window shelf. If you have paid for the whole term, I have already recorded your child's order, so you don't need to do anything (except tell your child what their order is so they aren't confused).  If you are yet to pay for your term order, please do so at your earliest convenience.


Lost Property

The lost property pile has started again already this year!  The gear is currently in the office foyer - Please take a minute to check if you suspect your child has missing uniform already, it would be great to keep the pile down this year. Thank you
