Our school

Maraekakaho School is a growing contributing state primary school. It is situated in a rural location, a picturesque 15 minute drive from Hastings or 20 minutes from Taradale. The school caters for Y1–8 and is a decile 8. Our roll has steadily grown in recent years and usually finish the year with approximately 135-160 children. The school was established in 1894 and has a very proud history. While we will continue to respect and acknowledge the past, we are very much focused on the future. 

We have been undertaking an extensive building programme since 2020 and will continue until our roll growth classrooms are completed in the coming years.

Our principal

Maraekakaho School requires a principal who can add to our vision of making a difference for our students. Someone who has the energy and enthusiasm to lead our school forward with innovation and a commitment to establishing a sound academic foundation for our students.

Our staff

Maraekakaho School has a collaborative and experienced staff who understand that a rural school needs teachers who are there for the kids and prepared to take on extra responsibilities. We are very fortunate to have a wonderfully dedicated senior management team and a dynamic team of teachers and teacher aides who strive to ensure they are making a difference for all our children.

Our family

Maraekakaho is a medium-sized rural school and has incredibly supportive families that understand the school is the hub of our community. We fundraise and work hard to ensure our educational offering is providing our students with a healthy mix of rural values and a modern approach to learning.
