About Us


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 eight hundred.

Arahoe School has always been a contributing school catering for students in the first six years of their schooling. Entry to the school is open to all students. While the majority of children enrolled are drawn from the areas immediately surrounding the school, a significant number do travel from outside our natural catchments areas to attend. The school draws from a diverse community who are incredibly supportive of their children and of the school.

At the heart of our school are 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.
