The Board of Trustees, Staff, Students and Principal would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors to our website.
Ararimu is a small rural school with an enviable reputation. It offers a wide curriculum for Year 1 – 8 pupils. Students achieve well and we encourage and welcome students who are self managing learners.
The Ararimu Valley is within a 15 minute drive time from both Papakura and Pukekohe. The school sits in a valley bordered by the Bombay Hills to the south-west and the Hunua Ranges to the north-east.
Our educational goal is to provide an environment that is positive, progressive, stimulating, rewarding and FUN! An environment that provides for the development of each child's individual potential. We aim, with the involvement of parents, to develop confident, happy, independent students by providing programmes of work that cater for all levels of achievement, concentrating on individual needs across the curriculum.
