Principal's Welcome


Tena Koutou Katoa 


Welcome to our school's website and particularly those visiting for the first time.

Temuka Primary School  is the largest primary school centrally located within the Temuka township. We are a contributing school,  catering for the needs of Yr 1-6 students. Students at Yr 7 enrol at Opihi College also in Temuka, for the completion of the Secondary Schooling education.

We believe in building and maintaining strong relationships between our students and their teachers. To promote this, our students are placed with their teachers for two years in our composite Year 3/4 (Team Rocket) and Year 5/6 Team Aoraki Learning Teams. Teachers develop these strong relationships and utilise this knowledge to maximise the learning potential of their students.


This year we have two Year 1/2 classes that will begin the year with 23 students in each. We also have two New Entrant classes that will start the year with 10 students in each.
