Climbing our way to the top!

Welcome To Te Anau School

Te Anau School has a strong vision of ‘Climbing Our Way to the Top’. Students use this vision to strive to be the best that they can be, whether it is in the classroom, out in the bush or in the playground with their friends. This vision comes from our location next to the mountainous region of Fiordland National Park which we are located on the edge of.

We are a school that loves to get out there and do it. We regularly utilise the National Park and our lake. We are part of Kids Restore the Kepler which is a programme to help restore birdsong to an area just across the lake from Te Anau Township.

We are a contributing (Year 0 – Year 6) school (U4) with a roll of between 250 and 280 students. We have a decile ranking of 9.

The school site is on Milford Road and occupies a tree lined site of 2.2 hectares in the centre of Te Anau township.

The community has a town/country population of about 2500 – we are a holiday destination for some people who have holiday homes here. Overseas tourists also visit us in large numbers, especially in the summer months.

Fantastic show of ability and sportsmanship yesterday at the Northern Cross Country by our Te Anau School tamariki. Out of our 33 athletes 21 came in the top 6 of their respective races. Stand out age groups included the 10 year old girls where we came 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th! Also the 8 year old boys where we came 1st, 2nd 3rd and 6th! We certainly showed the rest of Northern Southland what Te Anau kids are made of! Every one of our tamariki showed outstanding Togetherness, Optimism and Pride!
