Tīrau Primary School
Welcome to the very special place that we call home and some of you out there may call "corrugated town". We are a unique little school in a unique location surrounded by an ever thriving township.
Our school offers a rich blend of country lifestyle with a modern rich learning environment that maintains that rural and family atmosphere where we value the opportunity to Grow Successful Learners Together. Take the time to check out our website to see what we have to offer and to take a closer look at what we are up to as a school.
We would love to hear from you if you have any questions or queries and if you would like a guided tour of our fantastic school, feel free to pop in and say hello.
