Nau Mai, Haere Mai
Welcome to Pukekawa School

Pukekawa School is small rural primary school, catering for tamariki from Years 1 to 6, in Franklin, Northern Waikato.

We provide a caring and nurturing environment, with comfortable and well-resourced classrooms.  Our kura also provides a modern learning environment; Ahi Ka (The Hub) in Years 4-6, where students are able to work within the student agency framework with extremely dedicated, and professional teachers.

We are an EnviroSchool which means our contexts of study follow a cross curricula approach to themes that support and inform our students about their envionment and their role in it.

Pukekawa School is an inclusive school, honouring the Treaty of Waitangi and  welcoming people from all cultures, religions and ethnic backgrounds.

Our grounds have wide open spaces to play, surrounded by native planting and school vegetable gardens as well as a challenging playground.

Pukekawa School provides a family culture, with several generations of families attending, and parents involved in various events throughout the year.

If you would like to talk about enrolling your child please get in touch with the office; we would love to show you around.
