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 60 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, 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 lifelong learning.
