Welcome to Hira School, Nelson


Hira School was established in 1872, but was initially called Happy Valley School. Nowadays we are a semi-rural contributing primary school with approximately 50 Year 1 to 6 children.

We are located in a beautiful valley at the foot of the Whangamoas and about a 10 minute scenic drive from Nelson CBD. Our grounds are spacious and include two large playing fields, an adventure playground, a full sized tennis/netball court, a swimming pool and the children’s favourite: our sealed scooter and bike track, known as the Hira Highway.

We are the hub of our community and we often use our outstanding local environment to help make learning exciting and meaningful for our children.

Hira School is committed to the practices of social and emotional learning and mindfulness, aspiring to realize the highest potential of a balanced mind, a good heart and a healthy body.

Matariki Breakfast Celebration: What a lovely occasion it was this morning, sharing Matariki breakfast with our Hira School whanau. It has become an integral event in our school calendar and this week is particularly suitable as it is te Wiki of te Reo, Maori Language Week.
At Matariki we celebrate the rising of the star cluster which signifies the Maori New Year. It is a time to pause and reflect, to learn from the past and plan for the future.
Nga mihi nui ki a koutou i nga kaiako me kaimahi o Hira – best wishes to you all from the teachers and staff at Hira School.
