Our History

Our History

Tirohia Primary School is a rural school situated between Paeroa and Te Aroha. We are a state funded, co-educational full primary school catering for students from Years 1 to 8. Tirohia School students are a mixture of rural and town children.

Founded in 1922, the school is a neighbour of H.G. Leach & Co. Ltd, Tirohia Marae and our wonderful rural neighbours, many of whom have been vested in the school for generations.

Tirohia School is a family orientated school providing a physically and emotionally safe environment. We ensure that all students have equal access to learning opportunities inclusive of ability, gender, ethnicity, and personal circumstances.

Tirohia School has extensive grounds, with ample natural shade and a much loved and well used school swimming pool. Our students are encouraged to live our key competencies through adventurous play and highly engaging learning programmes.
