Our Vision
Growing the Future
Like the environment grows strong timber, we set down strong foundations for growth into the future.

Like the kowhai, we continue to grow academically, socially, culturally and through sport.

Like the kereru we confidently seek out the branch that grows the best fruit.

We are Elsthorpe and we are the future.

Information about our school
Our school is based in a rural community in Central Hawke’s Bay. We are a full primary school from year 1 to 8 with a roll of 43.  We have 2 fulltime teachers assisted by several part-time staff.

Our school community is a mix of families from the surrounding district, which is made up of private farms, corporate farms, lifestyle farms and the beachside settlements of Kairakau and Mangakuri. Our location offers us a unique rural character and closeness to our wider school community.
