Pukekohe East School 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 pupils. It has served as a focal point in the area.
The staff of the school are experienced, dedicated and caring professionals. The school is well resourced and has excellent information technology capability, which assists children to take responsibility for their learning.
The school has re-engineered its charter, strategic planning, and curriculum delivery systems in order to integrate current educational theory and practice into its operations.
There is considerable pride taken by staff, the PTA, the Board of Trustees, children 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.
