Welcome to Dairy Flat School

Strive for Excellence, Care for All

Principal’s Welcome

Kia Ora,
Welcome to Dairy Flat School.
Dairy Flat is a rural haven close to Auckland, where our families can enjoy the freedom of space and feel connected to the country. The school greatly benefits from strong support from our community.

Our school aims to “provide the best possible learning experiences and environment to facilitate students to become lifelong learners who strive for excellence, value diversity, think creatively and care for themselves and others.” We believe that ‘everyone can become a powerful learner, in a supportive, connected learning environment based on respect for each other and reflective practices.’

Dairy Flat School has a long and proud tradition. The school was established in 1878, and from old accounts of the district, Dairy Flat had a predecessor, Pukeatua School, which had a roll of twenty. The school has certainly progressed from its early beginning and now proudly offers excellent learning and teaching. We are responsive to the community and the needs of the children.
