School Description

Awahou School is a fantastic rural school located in the very scenic Pohangina Valley - 15kms north of Ashhurst and 25 minutes drive from Palmerston North.

Awahou School is a rural lifestyle, co-educational, U1, Decile 7, 3 Teacher-staffed full primary school.  Awahou School is set in 2 hectares of well-fenced and landscaped grounds/sports field. The school consists of 3 classrooms, a great Modern Learning Environment, administration block, community hall, a multi-purpose room, library, swimming pool, tennis court and field. We have a mixture of P.C. and Apple products integrated into and supporting our learning.

The school has a very supportive parent community and is involved in the wider Pohangina Valley community. The Pohangina River divides the east and west sides of the valley. Children from both sides of the Pohangina River attend the school. Two bus routes serve the school, one to the North and one to the South.
