Ruahine School is a vibrant, rural, full primary school nestled beneath the Ruahine Ranges. We are situated in a dairy, and sheep/beef farming area approximately 12 kilometres southwest of Dannevirke, within the Tararua District. They have a proud history of achievement, success and community involvement. There is a strong tradition of support for the school which is shown in the wonderful facilities available. The district and school are part of a very close knit and supportive community.
The needs of the children and their learning are the highest priority and the whole school community works hard to help our children to do the best they can do and be the best they can be.
They have a strong focus on Literacy and Mathematics, as well as providing many opportunities for the children to participate in sporting and cultural activities.
At Ruahine School they all strive to do ‘The Best I Can Do,’ and be ‘The Best I Can Be’.
