The entrance to our school is via a concrete bus bay and through a carved archway, which forms a prominent feature of our school grounds.
Special features of Pukepoto school include a swimming pool, tennis and basketball court, large play areas and equipment, attractive well-maintained gardens and grounds, a school orchard, creek area with our own pet tuna, and wetlands which are currently being re-developed. We also have school gardens, with worm farms and composting bins onsite to make our own rich soil and nutrients to grow our seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Our students enjoy a rural outlook and relatively low pupil/teacher ratios, enabling us to provide more one-to-one time and extra support.
Pukepoto has a tradition of whanau returning to enrol their families.
One of the strengths of our school is the caring extended family atmosphere and a community which supports the learning, cultural needs, and a strong sense of belonging to Pukepoto School.
