Haere mai, Welcome to Hira School, Nelson

We are an innovative semi-rural primary school with a proud history at the heart of the community since 1872. Located in the beautiful Hira Valley, just 15 minutes from Nelson City, Hira School has a current roll of approximately 80 children, from Year 1 to 6.

 

We offer a dynamic learning environment with dedicated and passionate staff. Our philosophy encourages balanced academic, social and physical learning, in a school that is well-equipped both inside and out.

Facilities include spacious grounds with large playing fields, an adventure playground, a full-sized tennis/netball court, solar-heated swimming pool and the children’s favourites: a natural stream and a sealed scooter and bike track, known as ‘the Hira Highway’.

Our smaller size is a strength that encourages family participation, caters for individual needs and fosters a successful approach to life-long learning.

After School Care Programme will not be available for Term 4 - apologies for any inconvenience. Our small community does just not seem to have the need for this service.
