This is my fourth year as Principal at Ararimu School, and it is my privilege to welcome current and future parents to our school community! At Ararimu School, we pride ourselves on fostering an environment where every child can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our dedicated staff are committed to providing an exceptional education, ensuring each student reaches their full potential.

With our small class sizes, we can offer personalized attention to every child, allowing for tailored instruction and fostering strong relationships between students and teachers. This, combined with our focus on high academic achievement, ensures students are well-prepared for future success.

Beyond academics, we provide various sporting opportunities, camps, and educational trips, enriching students' experiences and fostering a well-rounded education. Our school community has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, often described as a family feel, where every child is valued and supported.

We are fortunate to have a supportive Board of Trustees and PTA who work tirelessly to enhance the school experience for our students and families. Our school is well-resourced, providing the tools and materials necessary for an enriching learning environment.

I invite you to become part of our school community, where your child will receive an outstanding education and be supported every step of the way. Join us at Ararimu School, where excellence meets opportunity.

I invite you to come and have a look around. I am sure you will be impressed by what you see.
