We are a small, rural country school that is thinking big! We are closely linked to our wider community and take great pride in both our students and their achievements.
Tuturumuri is located 30 km out of Martinborough in the beautiful Wairarapa, on the way to Tora, Te Awaiti and White Rock beaches. We are the southern most school on the North Island. Farming is the way of life out here, but fishing, hunting and surfing are pretty good ways to pass the time as well!
We’ve had an incredibly successful year, so far! In September, we came third in the HP Rural Schools Competition. You can check out our video entry on our school blog. We are absolutely stoked with our prizes from HP, which included tablets, chrome books and more! In April, 2014, we won the Best School Garden in South Wairarapa, beating out much larger schools from Gladstone through to Featherston. We already have plans for how to defend the title next year. At the moment, we are planning our A&P Show on 24 October. It’s a fantastic community day, run by Tuturumuri School. It’s going to be even bigger and better than last year, so circle the date on your calendars now!
Tuturumuri School offers fantastic resources including an indoor swimming pool, a tennis court, a cooking programme (with its own kitchen), a gardening programme and much, much more. Pop by the school anytime to check us out.
