Kia Ora and welcome to the Takapau School Website

Takapau School is situated in Central Hawkes Bay, approximately 20km south of Waipukurau. We are a full primary school catering for children Year 1-8 with a roll of approximately 120.

Our school has six classrooms, four of which have been recently renovated into 21st Century Learning environments. We have a large New Entrant /Year 1 / Year 2 classroom, which is very well equipped for this age group. We also have a school hall, library and computer suite. Our outdoor facilities include a fully utilized swimming pool, netball courts, junior and senior adventure playgrounds, an enclosed sandpit and a 350m limestone bike track around the perimeter of the school field.  We own 50 bikes, which enables everyone to benefit from the cycle track. We have had a brand new turf laid at the beginning of 2022 that encompasses our courts for Netball, Basketball and Padder Tennis. 

As you can see from our gallery our children are involved in and experience many learning opportunities.

We are very proud of our children and environment and welcome any visitors to our school.
