At Te Matauru Primary we aim to ensure that we meet the needs of our community. We appreciate the support we get from our community in return.
Below are the testimonials from some of our current school families.
We are the parents of three girls at Te Matauru Primary; Charlotte aged 5, Sophie 8, Emily 10 and a 16 year old son, Connor at High School.
Our children were foundation pupils at Te Matauru Primary school. From the initial meetings (prior to the school opening) with Danny and the staff, we felt excited and had no doubt that the decision to send Lucy and Jack to Te Matauru would be the right one.
The children are excited about going to school each day and have thrived in the environment that the staff have established. There is a real community feel and the events the school holds are well supported by students, parents, staff and the wider school whānau. The staff continue to focus on whanaungatanga and developing strong links within the community.
Shane and I believe developing our children both socially and academically are equally important and this is embedded within the school's core values of respect, bravery and responsibility. All staff are approachable and are willing to go the extra mile in ensuring our children are given every opportunity to realise their full potential. Shane and I would have no hesitation in recommending Te Matauru Primary to prospective families looking to choose a primary school in the Rangiora area.

We are delighted to be a part of the Te Matauru Primary School community. We decided to enrol our two girls into year 5 and 7 for the inaugural TMP year in 2020. Our girls education and learning environment is very important, so we afforded it plenty of thought. It wasn’t an easy decision as they were going to leave another local school, but it was aided after going to the first few meet and greet information evenings. We could immediately sense the professionalism and quality of staff which was in evidence. This has since been born out and we couldn’t be happier.
We chose Te Matauru as it allowed the boys some independence of getting themselves to school and back as they were attending an out of zone school. Since starting at Te Matauru it has been wonderful to see the boys meet and form friendships with the neighbourhood kids and families.
