Welcome to Te Horo School
Growing great learners for today and tomorrow
Te Horo School is a wonderful country school set in an amazing rural area between Otaki and Waikanae on the Kapiti Coast. Our school is unique in the fact that despite it’s proximity to Wellington, it is able to maintain all the traditions of a country school.
We have events such as lamb and calf day which sees children bringing their animals to school in the lead up so they can feed and care for them during the day and includes growing gardens as well, through to our annual school fair “Paddy’s Mart”, Matariki breakfast and our special ANZAC service that is held each year at school.
Te Horo School is a decile 9 school. Teaching from year 1 (5 year olds) to year 8 (12 year olds). We operate as a whole school which we believe encourages the older children to take responsibility for the younger children.
