Arahoe School


Congratulations Chess Champs!

Selina, Justin, Jerome, Darren and Carol achieved FIRST PLACE at the 2020 West Auckland Primary Chess Championship.

Welcome to Arahoe School

Arahoe School first opened with four classrooms in 1958 to provide for the growing urban population between New Lynn and Green Bay. During the subsequent years our school has grown considerably and now has a student population of just over 800.

At the heart of our school are our people. Our school community is a vibrant, dynamic and supportive one. Examples of this can be found in our talented Board of Trustees, Arahoe School Community Group (ACG), our highly professional staff and that which makes us unique, our wonderful students.

I hope you enjoy browsing our website and ultimately, being part of the Arahoe School community.
