School Survey

As part of reviewing planning for the next 10 years of education at Ahuroa School, the board is looking at what Year 7 and Year 8 education at Ahuroa should look like.

We would love to hear from as many people in the community as possible. Maybe you have pre-schoolers (or plans for some!) that could be attending Ahuroa by 2026, or maybe you had kids at the school in the past – maybe you attended the school in the past! Or maybe you just have something valuable to say.

We have a survey that we would love you to fill out – unless you have a lot to say, it should only take a couple of minutes.

If you have any troubles or questions, please let me know: Tony Meyer,

Ag Day at Ahuroa School


This year we are opening our annual Ag Day to all our community families.  As well as being great fun, participation provides children with a unique and valuable opportunity to learn about animal husbandry, agricultural and horticultural practice in NZ, as well as growing food in our own gardens.  We appreciate not all children have the opportunity to be involved within their own schools, which is why we are opening our 2016 Ag Day to all our local families.

Please find more information below.  If your family would like to make the most of this opportunity please let us know so we can keep you updated.

Come along!

Besides many outside an inside presentations, there will be loads of things to see and do – stalls, bake sales, BBQ, hot and cold drinks, farmers competitions, country games.  Mark this date in your calendars now!
