EARTHQUAKE NOVEMBER 14TH 2016 – Tuturumuri School is OK! We are still up and running. A little shaken up, but we are doing well.
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 Renita Persico is the Release Teacher. Renita teaches in the classroom on Thursdays and Fridays 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: Mike Firth and Kerstin Gruender. Renita Persico is the Staff Representative.
The school has now been upgraded to a Fibre connection so our internet speed is lightning fast.
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.
