Ngutunui Enviro School

Principal's Message.

Welcome to Ngutunui Enviro School!


We are a unique 'family' school, one that typifies both lifestyle and work ethic of rural New Zealand. We provide a broad education for students from Years 1 to 8 and our current roll is 52. Our numerous resources include activboards and ipads, a swimming pool and tennis courts. We are very proud of our well cared for grounds and are surrounded by countryside, rivers and mountains. We have the benefit of close proximity to two well resourced towns, Te Awamutu and Otorohanga, while facilities of the city are only 30 minutes away in Hamilton.We have high expectations for students' learning and we continually support students to progress and experience success. We utilise all available resources to achieve this, including people, our environment and technologies. We aim to provide many of the opportunities that students would have available in larger schools. This year we offer itinerant music classes, Performing Arts evenings,  interschool sport and speeches, Jump Jam for all students and Theatresports for year 4 to 8. Year 7 and 8's attend an offsite Technology and Arts programme. We offer lunchtime and after school sport with external facilitators and we are part of Project Energise with Kiwisport Waikato. Senior students participate in a Physical Activity Leadership programme (PALS) and have a range of leadership opportunities in the school. We have an Enviro Nurturers Group which will lead implementation of an Enviro Plan, culminating in EnviroSchools' Children's Day later in the year. There is also a weekly Book Club. We respect our bicultural heritage and provide Te Reo me Tikanga Maori and have a Kapa Haka group for students Years 3-8. New Zealand Sign Language is also taught.We welcome visitors and new students to our school so next time you are n the area stop by for a tcup of tea and a tour.
