Welcome To Our School


Tauwhare Primary School is a rural state primary school nestled at the foot of the beautiful Scotsman Valley, just 10 – 15 minutes drive from Hamilton, Cambridge or Morrinsville. Although traditionally a farming area, a large number of newly developed rural subdivisions has changed the area and the mix of children at the school.

Specialist. We provide opportunities for during school classes in Guitar and Drums to extend and enrich our curriculum.  We also run an Out of School Care Programme before and after school.

A pleasant student environment is engendered by having a policy of zero tolerance to bullying and swearing, and providing exciting school playgrounds to keep children active during school breaks.  We have a Peer Support Team and Sports Monitors who are active in the playground to ensure all children have a happy, fulfilled playground experience.  Great kiwi Rural School traditions such as Calf Club are held every year, giving the students first hand experience with the care of animals, plants and nature.
