Hokowhitu School




Hokowhitu School is located in central Palmerston North, and we work hard to provide a supportive, caring, and positive environment for our children.

Our roll is currently around 380 students, and our children come from more than thirty different cultures. 

We have an extensive playground and a swimming pool. We are also able to make use of the neighbouring Hokowhitu Park.

Hokowhitu School was opened in February 1924, and the Albert Street frontage - including our bell tower - is a Category II listed historic building.

Our mission: Strive to be the best you can be.

Our vision: our school is a wonderful place where students are inspired and guided on their journey through life.

Our values: STRIVE

  • Step up and be the best you can be 
  • Try new things and persevere 
  • Respect self, others and things 
  • Investigate, wonder and learn 
  • Value others 
  • Enthusiastically live by our virtues
