Welcome to Paparimu School ~ Living rural, growing global learners
Paparimu School is a boutique-sized, vibrant and growing, rural, full primary school. We offer education for Year 1-8 students. Our school is situated in the stunning Paparimu Valley, nestled at the base of the Hunua Ranges, in the Franklin District of Auckland. All within an approximate 25 minute driving time of both Papakura and Pukekohe. Our small size, is our advantage!
Our Decile 10 school is extremely well resourced, with two new modern classrooms (mid 2014), a 20m heated swimming pool, a brand new (2018) 100sqm outdoor learning space, full sized rugby field, astro turf, library, adventure playground and natives area. Additionally, we also have access to the adjacent community hall and tennis courts. We do not have an enrolment zone, and welcome students to our inclusive school.
Feel free to browse our site and get a feel for the superb learning environment we create for our pupils.
