Welcome to Kerikeri Primary School. Nau Mai Haere Mai.

Kerikeri Primary School is a large semi-rural school located in the idyllic surrounds of the Bay of Islands. The local area is known as ‘the cradle of the nation’ being the site of the first mission station in the country that established the framework for New Zealand’s bi-cultural society. Kerikeri is home to some of the most historic buildings in New Zealand.

Kerikeri Primary School is sited on expansive grounds incorporating 4 playground areas, hard surface play areas and large playing fields. In recent years the school has adopted a ‘kaitiaki’ (caretaker) role over the neighbouring Wairoa Stream and we have worked in partnership with our community to develop a walking track to the stream and swimming hole that lay beneath a stunning rock waterfall.


Stationery items are available at local stationery shops or online at Qizzle:   You can download individual lists on our enrolments page.
