Purakaunui School

Purakaunui SchoolKia ora and welcome to Purakaunui School's website. 

Our school is set amidst farmland and native bush overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The land slopes north towards the sun and has a fantastic view. We have two sunny classrooms with log burners, and a very well-stocked purpose-built library which doubles up as an art room for our after school programme ASK ANTO. Our school grounds are huge, with a tennis court, a soccer field, a playground, a large and very popular sandpit, shrubberies and big trees,  lots of hut-building potential and a Pizza oven!

Purakaunui is situated on the hill between Port Chalmers and Waitati, with a northward opening inlet.  It has a sheltered bay with a long sandy beach reaching out to the headland, which is the location of an ancient Maori Pa, Mapoutahi. 

Purakaunui is a picturesque and relaxing village with spectacular walks and places to explore nearby.

Our contact number is 03 482 1026 and the office email is office@purakaunui.school.nz

Our community is extremely supportive of the school, which is a focal point for the townships of Long Beach, Purakaunui and Osborne.

The children enjoy being part of a large "school family" with all ages from 5 to 12 mixing for play and study.  Our friendly and deeply committed staff ensure the education programme is fun, varied and challenging.
