Our Theme for this year is “Why, Why, Why, he aha?” We want to develop our questioning skills as we further develop our learning process and develop our understanding of the learning pit.

Welcome to Upper Moutere School, a school with a proud history in heart of the Upper Moutere Community.

For 161 years Upper Moutere Schools focus has been on learning, the way this has happened has evolved considerably over recent years and will continue to do so at quite a rapid pace.

Our students have greater responsibility and therefore ownership of their learning. They are expected to be leaders of their learning supported by teachers who work alongside them to meet their learning needs using an increasingly diverse range of learning tools to engage and challenge them.

We are proud of our students and we are proud of their achievements across the whole curriculum. Our Learning Lights empower and guide our students to achieve within a positive, supportive collaborative environment.


We are proud of our school and we love to share it with others so…

feel free to pop in an see us in action.
