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.

Late last term we were lucky enough to have this awesome team of Te Anau School students run a fundraiser for our new school hall. They ran a BBQ outside 4 Square Te Anau and raised an amazing $295. Thank you to the boys and 4 Square Te Anau for the support!
