Welcome to the very special learning community that is Port Ahuriri School.
Port Ahuriri School is a state contributing school, catering for children from year 1 to 6.
Our nautical theme is relevant to our location. The estuary, yachting and the Inner Harbour are all within walking distance. Sheltered by the backdrop of Napier Hill, Port Ahuriri School is ideally situated and only a 5 minute drive away from central Napier. Bypass roads to Napier suburbs and outer Napier provide easy access to our school.
Port Ahuriri School has an exceptionally supportive community who are extremely proud of the history and the achievements of the school and its pupils.
We actively encourage parent involvement in our school. We recognise that parents make a considered choice to send their children to our school, and we respect their ideas and input into their child’s education.
As a community, we believe in education with a focus on encouraging diversity and focussing on the development of the 'whole child' both socially and academically. Personal and cultural diversity are valued at Port Ahuriri School. We encourage the extension of knowledge in our children and encourage them to live in a caring and harmonious society. Stimulating experiences ensure that each child loves to come to school.
Port Ahuriri School is small enough to care but large enough to provide a range of sporting, cultural, technical and learning opportunities, for all children.
Our school values diversity, and international students bring a valuable dimension to our school, and enable our children to interact with children from around the world at an earlier stage than might normally be possible.
