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.
