Welcome to our small, friendly family based school, a country school in the city. Our motto of Courage, Courtesy and Kindness 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.

As the school principal I am 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”. I have been part of the school community for many years, as I have previously taught at Riverina. During this time, I have been the AP and SENCo (Special Needs Co ordinator). I am married to a principal at a local school, and we have three children, and I greatly value the future of our education system to help develop our young tamariki to grow academically, physically, socially and emotionally. When students leave Riverina, our aim is to encourage students to be confident, actively involved, lifelong learners who are determined to reach their potential.
