Welcome to Roto-o-Rangi School

Maungatautari Mountain provides the perfect rural backdrop to our spacious park-like grounds, boasting fruit and native trees, vegetable gardens and of course an enormous field for our tamariki to enjoy! 


If you are looking for a kura / school that is a little bit different we welcome you to come for a visit!

Introducing Our School

We are a vibrant country primary school located in the heart of the Roto-o-Rangi district, just a short drive from Cambridge, with a school bus running daily from Leamington Rugby Sports Club and a rural bus collecting students from the Kairangi Loop. We have ample parking available for families who drop off and collect their children, and an after school care programme running daily. 
Our school is a mix of rural and town students from Years 1 to 6.  As a school, we have a clear and strong Vision identifying who we are, what we stand for and the direction we are heading. We are a PB4L School, with a focus on positive behaviour centred around our three school values of Respect Whakaute, Responsibility Manahau and Resilience Takohanga. 

At Roto-o-Rangi School, we combine country values with modern learning. We are committed to providing a positive, stimulating, enjoyable learning environment where your child is encouraged to 'Tuumanako Teitei Aim High' and reach their full potential. Our smaller size allows the relationships between students, teachers and peers to flourish so that the teachers can truly know the individual and get the best out of them.

Our high quality teaching staff provide stimulating, challenging and learner-centred teaching practices. They incorporate traditional, proven techniques with modern, innovative approaches to develop the strong foundations needed for our tamariki to thrive in an ever-changing future.

To find out more about us, please take your time to explore our site, visit our Facebook page or call in for a visit.  

I look forward to personally meeting you, and having you and your child/ren join our school community. 

Ngaa mihi, 

Wayne Donnellon - Principal
