Welcome to Pukekohe East School
Learn to Strive. Strive to Learn.

Our Principal's Message

Pukekohe East is set in an historic semi-rural community, five kilometres from Pukekohe township. Since 1880, the school has had a history of excellent community support and high expectations for students.

The Board of Trustees and staff have a shared educational vision for the school, one which emphasises students’ success, enjoyment and valuing learning, and the environment.

We have a digital learning vision, which correlates with our school vision.

‘Students and staff are independent digital learners and thinkers. They strive to do their personal best by making the appropriate learning choices and selecting the relevant tools and digital content to enhance authentic learning though the use of teaching and learning inquiry.’

There is considerable pride taken by staff, the PTA, the Board of Trustees, students and wider community in the school. Parents enjoy an open door policy and there is a high level of communication between home and school. This is reflected in a superb learning environment for all.
