Parawai School Home

Welcome to Pārāwai School

Adjacent to the historic Kauaeranga Valley Forest Park and with beautiful Thames Coast beaches only 10km away, Pārāwai Primary School was established over 40 years ago.

With a roll of nearly 300 students from New entrants to Year 8, the school has a tradition of fostering excellence in education through quality teaching and a strong partnership between home and school.

We hope you enjoy our new website (portions of which are still under development) and visit us regularly.

Maori Language Week will be celebrated at Parawai School for a whole year. Every fortnight we will be introducing one useful, simple sentence. All teachers will be using this sentence frequently during that time. If you wish to use simple sentences at home, too, go to the website of the Maori Language commission here.

Many classes have their class blogs up and running.�Access your child's class blog here.
