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!
Jo Mahoney is our Principal and Sissy Pickering is the Release Teacher. Sissy teaches in the classroom on Mondays and Tuesdays and Jo from Wednesday to Friday. Heather Butler is the Office Administrator, teacher aide and school cleaner so she is one busy person!
The school is supported by an experienced board whom have the well-being and achievement of the students at the heart of all they do. Angela Robinson is our Board Chairperson and works alongside the Principal and other board members: Pete Bragger, Tina Reynolds and Kerstin Gruender.
The school has now been upgraded to a Fibre connection so our internet speed is lightning fast.
The students are currently training for their first Weet-bix Tryathlon in Lower Hutt in March.
In term 1, we are looking at water, water safety and water conservation. The students are applying technological skills in the school garden with varying garden projects that they have chosen themselves. These are student led initiatives.
Tuturumuri School offers fantastic resources including an indoor swimming pool, a tennis court, cooking facilities for the students, a gardening programme and much, much more.
Pop by the school anytime to check us out.
