Te Pahu School

Welcome to Te Pahu School

Andrew Chesswas - Principal

I am privileged to have recently been appointed principal to lead the team at Te Pahu School. Situated at the base of the stunning Mt. Pirongia, we have a strong connection with our mountain. Our vision is "Attitude determines Altitude". The mountain forms the basis of the Te Pahu Challenge, which provides a series of challenges for students throughout their school years. School feels like a big family with parents and community members regularly involved in the life of the school. All Year 7/8 students are trained as part of their leadership role to take extra responsibilities at school. With approximately 120 students we are small enough to know every child personally. Our team of experienced teachers design learning opportunities to meet the needs and interests of our students. We are open for new enrolments and welcome anyone who would like to visit our school and meet the team.
