Matakana School

Mission Statement

Matakana School aims to provide high quality learning opportunities for all their children, that reflect the unique character of the community.


Matakana School Community

Matakana School is a larger rural state primary school. The school roll is sitting at approximately 340 children and is currently restricted by an enrolment limitation scheme. The children who attend come from a wide range of backgrounds. A significant group of recent enrolments have come from homes in other countries. The diversity of the contributing families is seen as a strength. The children themselves enjoy school life and have a positive attitude towards the learning process. The parents place a high degree of importance on children's achievement and provide strong support for the school's programme: to develop outstanding resources, to recruit highly motivated staff and to promote strong, professional curriculum delivery.



Matakana School consists of fourteen permanent classrooms, three relocatable classrooms, a resource room, an assembly hall, music room and various other administrative and storage facilities.

The facilities include an adventure playground and a swimming pool in addition to netball courts sited on land alongside the school.

In 2008, the school together with fundraising monies built a 400m fitness track around the perimeter of the school field. This allows the children to utilize the main field even in the wettest of weather.
