Our School

Arakura School is a decile two school located in Wainuiomata, Lower Hutt.  We consider ourselves a progressive multi-cultural school that is responsive to the wishes of the community.  

Arakura School aims to develop policies and practices that reflect Aotearoa / New Zealand’s cultural diversity and the unique position of Māori culture. We take all reasonable steps to provide instruction in tikanga Māori and te reo Māori.  We try to provide the best possible education for all our students particularly for Māori students, Pasifika students, and students with additional learning support needs.

Our School

Ehara taku toa, he takitahi, he toa takitini

My success should not be bestowed onto me alone, as it was not individual success but success of many.

We are located at the northern end of Wainuiomata. Nestled up among the Pukeatua hills, we are surrounded by natural bush, native birds, and large sustainable areas for children to learn in.
