Welcome to Ruahine School

The Best I Can Do, The Best I can Be!

Kia Ora!

Ruahine School is a vibrant, rural, full primary school nestled beneath the Ruahine Ranges. We are situated in a dairy, and sheep/beef farming area approximately 12 kilometres southwest of Dannevirke, within the Tararua District. We have a proud history of achievement, success and community involvement. There is a strong tradition of support for the school which is shown in the wonderful facilities available. The district and school are part of a very close knit and supportive community.

The needs of our children and their learning are our highest priority and our whole school community works hard to help our children to do the best they can do and be the best they can be.

We have a strong focus on Literacy and Mathematics, as well as providing many opportunities for our children to participate in sporting and cultural activities.

At Ruahine School we all strive to do ‘The Best I Can Do,’ and be ‘The Best I Can Be’.
