Rere School

Our School

Rere School is a decile 8, two-teacher full primary school situated 45km west of Gisborne in beautiful hill country. We are the heart of three geographic areas: Wharekōpae, Tahunga and Rere. Our school is named for the nearby iconic Rere Falls – rere meaning waterfall in te reo Māori.

Our Students

Most of our families and whānau live on hill country sheep and beef stations, spread up to 35km in various directions from the school. Our children travel to school by bus, with two bus runs serving the school. The buses are proudly supplied by PĀMU Farms of New Zealand.
