Pokeno School

Pokeno is an eight teacher school of approximately 180 pupils. We are located at 54 Pokeno Road, 2 minutes from the main street of Pokeno.

 

We are a well-resourced school with eight classrooms, a library, administration building, resource room, swimming pool, large playground and field, and a large multi-purpose shade structure with kitchen facilities. Pokeno playcentre is also located in the school grounds.

 

The majority of our children live in the Pokeno or Tuakau townships, with a small number of children living on the outskirts on life-style blocks. Plans for development within the Pokeno area have been established which will see the town and school continue to grow over the next ten to fifteen years. The Helenslee Road subdivision is progressing quickly and the school has been taking a stream of steady enrolments from the new housing for some time.

 

Pokeno School has an enthusiastic and supportive Board of Trustees. The Board produces a monthly community publication called the 'Pokeno Focus'. The high-quality staff are hard working and ensure that the needs of the children are paramount to everything we do. There is a hard working and very successful PTA who are always on the look out for new members.

 

The community is extremely supportive and fully involved in the School’s activities.

 

The children of Pokeno School take part in a wide range of annual events. The senior children compete in a number of events through the East Group Schools sports group. This includes swimming, athletics, hockey, netball, cross country, rippa rugby and soccer. A well supported Education Outside The Classroom programme allows the senior students to attend bi-annual camps. A gala day is held in Term 4 every year.
