Pukerau Primary School

Te Kura o Pukerau

Pukerau, ‘The Land Of A Hundred Hills’ is a small rural community, situated approximately 12 minutes North of Gore. 

We are a rural school of around 60 students, with our school families coming from Waipahi, Pukerau and Kaiwera predominantly.  

- We have three classes -
Room 1: Our Year 2-3 students
Room 2: Our New Entrant - Year 1 students
Room 3: Our Year 4-6 students

This year, we are also running a fourth class, Mon-Thurs each week from 9:00am-12:15pm. 
This class is made up of Year 3-4 students from Rooms 1 and 3.

Our school was established in 1881 and is an important part of our community.

Each of our classrooms has two teachers who job-share.  
We enjoy the many benefits our job-share teaching positions bring to Pukerau School such as:
A wide range of knowledge and expertise, strong coverage of all curriculum areas with teachers leading learning in areas of personal strength and passion.
A real team atmosphere with lots of people working together to support and care for our ākonga (students).
The ability for job-share teachers to cover for one another, providing ongoing classroom continuity.

If you would to pop in and visit our kura (school), please contact our Principal Lisa Parish on principal@pukerau.school.nz to arrange an appointment.
