We are a well-resourced school with 18 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 Pokeno, with a small number of children living on the outskirts on life-style blocks. There has been significant growth within Pokeno and the school has been taking a steady stream of enrolments from the new housing developments for some time.
Pokeno School has an enthusiastic and supportive Board of Trustees. 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.
