Welcome to Putaruru Primary School. 

We provide a positive environment where each
child is empowered to learn.


Putaruru Primary was established in 2004 with the merger of 3 town and 1 country school.

We are located in the small rural town of Putaruru in the South Waikato District.   We have a good relationship with our community and are well supported by local businesses. 

We are a state contributing school catering for students in Y0 – Y6.  Our roll numbers range between 170 and 210.  Most of our Year 6 students leave to attend Putaruru College.

We provide a weekly transition to school programme called Jump Start and a partnership programme in the first 3 years called Mutukaroa.

The Putaruru Primary School population is made up of 61% Maori, 35% European, 2% Pacific Islander and 2% other.

Putaruru Primary School has 10 permanent classrooms, a hall, library, computer suite and a kitchen.  The school is set in large park like grounds.  There are three adventure playgrounds, a 25 m swimming pool, a permanent Ki-o-Rahi field and a 1 kilometre bike track.  We have recently planted a native bush area and an orchard.  The community is encouraged to use the grounds outside school hours
