Welcome to our small, friendly family based school, a country school in the city. Our motto of Courage- Māia, Courtesy- Atawhaitanga and Kindness- Manaakitanga underpins our core values.

Situated along the beautiful Tamaki River, near the east coast bays of Auckland, Riverina School is a contributing primary school for students from New Entrants to Year 6. We have an open zone and welcome visits to the school. We are located down a quiet cul-de-sac in Pakuranga, which leads down to a beautiful small reserve. Our school is often visited by the local wildlife and consequently the heron became the motif for Riverina.

Riverina has a strong history as it was the first school built in Pakuranga, in an area once known as Cabbage Tree Swamp. Opened on 1st February 1961, the school has large open spaces that are safe and attractive, a forest to explore and views of the Tamaki river. Riverina also has its own swimming pool.  

We are proud to lead a school that believes in high standards through an inclusive curriculum, with a team of professional and caring teachers and staff, working alongside a dedicated Board of Trustees with a supportive, culturally diverse community. This supportive network helps enrich all our learning and enhances our vision of  “Every Child, Every Opportunity”
