Nau mai, haere mai ki te kura o Roto-o-Rangi

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.

Roto-o-Rangi means Lake of the Sky due to the very large, shallow roto/lake that existed here pre-European settlement. The large, flat surface of the roto reflected te rangi/the sky.

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: Tuurangawaewae/Belonging, Mahi Tahi/Co-operation and Rerekeetanga/Innovation. A kura where tauira/students find a sense of belonging, work together and prepare for success in their future. We are a PB4L School, with a focus on positive behaviour centred around our three school values of Respect/Whakaute, Responsibility/Manawaroa and Resilience/Takohanga. 

A school bus runs daily from Leamington Rugby Sports Club and a rural bus collects students from around the Roto-o-Rangi and Kairangi areas. We have ample parking available for families who drop off and collect their children, with Before and After School Care programmes operating daily. 

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/ngaa kaiako, ngaa whaanau/families and peers to flourish. Kaiako 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

Matariki forms & info on parent helpers
21 Jun 2024

Kia ora koutou, 

Just a wee reminder that we need to have your Matariki permission forms back by Wednesday in order to prepare for both our parakuihi and haerenga. 

Sanctuary Mountain have asked us to keep additional people to a minimum, so please don't bring siblings or additional adults on the trip. We will need a maximum of 5 parents to help with transport as we have booked two buses. Once we have all the forms in we can make our transport arrangements and contact those who have offered to help. 

All whaanau are welcome to the parakuihi breakfast as we come together to celebrate this special time of year. 

Please return the completed paper copy or fill in the Google Form HERE


Assembly and Disco
20 Jun 2024

Kia ora e te whaanau, 

Tomorrow is our fortnightly assembly, here in the MP Room at 2.15pm, and all our whaanau are welcome to attend. 

One of our classes will share some of their recent mahi with us, and we will be giving out our usual class awards for Tuurangawaewae, Taonga Horomata, Rerekeetanga and Mahi Tahi. We will also be celebrating other achievements and news, including those coveted Roto Values awards! 

Don't forget the PTA disco at 6pm in the Roto-o-Rangi Hall. Wear those white and fluoro colours for maximum fun effect and bring coins for entry, snacks and treats!

Morena nngaa whaanau,

In preparation for our Matariki Breakfast, there are a few roles we need support with. These mainly involve preparing some of the kai before the breakfast or helping to cook /serve the breakfast. If you could complete the very simple form (Yes/No set of questions only) in the Skoolloop app that would be appreciated.
