Tamahere Model Country School, established in 1884, is a Decile 10 school that caters for Year 0 to 6 students within a supportive community,
Set in mature grounds with spacious playing fields, Tamahere School is equidistant from Hamilton and Cambridge in a semi-rural environment, close to State Highway 1 and Hamilton International Airport.
An enrolment scheme has operated since 2005 and as a result the peak roll is stable at around 400 students.
Tamahere School students are encouraged to achieve high academic standards and numeracy and literacy are a daily focus. A wide variety of opportunities are offered across all curriculum areas from the arts, with choir and productions, through to physical education and sports, including outdoor education and weekend sporting teams.
Tamahere School and community events are valued for their contribution to the children’s development. Agricultural Day in October and Pumpkin Night in April help maintain the rural atmosphere and community spirit.
As a Model Country School, School of Education trainee teachers are a regular and positive feature of the school environment.
