Introducing Rakaia School

The gateway to Mid Canterbury

Welcome to Rakaia School, the gateway to Mid Canterbury. Rakaia School is set back from State Highway 1 on Dunford Street with beautiful grounds and playing area for the students. 

The school roll sits around 200 pupils and 9 classrooms with a dedicated teaching staff and support staff. Our focus is on developing students who understand the values of our school and can enter secondary school confident, numerate, literate and communicative. We work really hard to get to know our students and families well so we can design a curriculum that best suits the learner. 

Our staff are dedicated, research based and confident teachers and support staff. The moment you enter the school we are sure you will feel the difference. 

Rakaia School continues to grow in popularity and the Roll has grown very quickly to be 200 with the largest roll being 225 in recent times.
