Te Kuiti Primary School - Our Best Always - Kia U Kia Mau Mo Ake Tonu Atu


Nau mai haere mai

Welcome to Te Kuiti Primary School’s website.


Our Learning vision is "Kia u kia mau mo ake tonu atu”. Our Best Always.

Our school values of  respect, manaakitanga, effort, whanaungatanga and honesty are the drivers for all that we do in our school.


We want our students to fulfil their potential, to feel part of and contribute to our school, community, and wider society. We achieve this through our high quality teachers who use "teaching as an inquiry” to continue to improve their practice and who provide the best possible educational opportunities for your children within a culturally responsive,safe, stimulating environment which motivates our students to achieve.

We encourage our parents to have ongoing communication with the school and teachers and to support this have established a range of electronic systems. You, as parents or caregivers, are able to link into your child’s class and teacher and see particular moments of interest during the day, or have your child share their work in real-time with you.  You are also able to use this function to message the teacher directly.

In 2017 we look forward to growing our teacher and student knowledge in te reo maori through our Professional Development with Te toi tupu. We will also be learning about our New Zealand history amongst other things as part of our learning inquiries. We also expect to continue to improve our student achievement.


2017 will see us close to providing the students in Years 5-8 with the opportunity to be using a chromebook each to support their learning. This is thanks to the local WDET trust which has been set up locally to support children in the purchase of the Chromebook devices.

This year will see the completion of our property modifications to support innovative learning.

Drop in, have a look around and meet our great team at Te Kuiti Primary.
