Kia ora, Hello!

Putaruru Primary was established in 2004 with the merger of 3 town and 1 country school.

We are located in the small rural town of Putaruru in the South Waikato District. We have a good relationship with our community and are well supported by local businesses. We are a state contributing school catering for students in Y0 – Y6. Our roll numbers range between 170 and 210. Most of our Year 6 students leave to attend Putaruru College.
