Our Mission Statement

Pukete School aims to provide a positive, stimulating, and secure learning environment, catering for each child’s individual potential, while developing independence, confidence and acceptable social skills.

About Our School
Pukete School is situated off Te Rapa Straight and is located just a few minutes drive from both the Hamilton City Centre, The Base and Westfield Shopping Centre. Pukete School opened in 1973. We currently have a roll of around 420 and we are a uniform school. We have an enrolment scheme in place (see Location) and the majority of Pukete students come from Pukete, Flagstaff, St. Andrews and Nawton with some children coming from further outlying areas.
