Recently, we had a session with Rowena Brown, the Enviroschools Educator, whom we invited to our teacher meeting to update us with the principles and procedures involved in becoming a Friend of Enviroschools and eventually an Enviroschool. A very wide range of environmental and sustainability education is involved and some excellent resources are available to schools that are accepted into this scheme. Apart from a small initial fee for teaching resources, this is a free, fully supported, ongoing school programme. Our teachers are generally supportive of being in a trial to see if this is the right way for our school to go. A copy of a brochure explaining Enviroschools is available on the School App in Newsletters and here is the link to the Enviroschools website -

About Our School

Our head students for 2018 are LUCY McINTYRE and EUAN GOWER Roll 150 - 180. Y 1-8. Quality Learning - Quality Behaviour - Quality Environment. Hunterville School opened on 28th September 1887 with a roll of 40 pupils. A secondary department was established at the school in 1912 and this operated until 1929. The word "Consolidated" in the school's name refers to the amalgamation of six smaller schools namely Silverhope (Paraekaretu) 1937; Rata 1937; Putorino 1939; Mangaonoho 1939; Poukiore 1941; and Rata-iti in 1952. The school's roll peaked in December 1958 at 416 pupils and the school hall was opened in 1960. The roll for the past several years has settled between 150 - 180 pupils, with approximately half of these pupils coming to school by bus. We start this year with a roll of 160 and expect to be around 175 by the end of the year. ...

Message From Our Principal

Welcome to the Hunterville School website. We’re pleased to be able to share something of ourselves with you. Hunterville School has a proud reputation built up over generations. We’re big enough to be able to provide those little extras to cater for diverse learning needs and yet not so big that we lose the family feeling that exists between students, staff, parents and community. For queries, concerns, complaints(!), or to give comment/feedback please feel free to get in touch with me through any of the contact details listed. Warm Regards Colleen Dalley Principal 10.01.2018 ...
