Nau Mai, Haere Mai and welcome to Ohura Valley Primary School

Ohura Valley Primary School is situated in Ohura which is a small rural service centre in the central North Island.

The town is set in picturesque countryside located 45 minutes from Taumarunui.

We are a contributing school catering for Year 1-8 students. The students come from families in Ohura Township and the surrounding farming families.

Ohura Valley Primary opened in 1908 as an Area School but has been reclassified by the Minister of Education, Wyatt Creech, on the 16 September 1998 to a full Primary, effective from 27 January 1999.

VISION : “Students are engaged as active learners, supported with a school curriculum that is meaningful and provides for them into the future.”


Parents should contact the school office if they wish to make an appointment to see a teacher so a suitable time can be arranged. Parents should only contact a teacher within school hours, or at home in an emergency or by prior arrangement.

We do, however, have an open door policy and parents are invited into the classroom and join in the daily activities.

The School telephone number is 07 893 8839 or fax 07 893 8832. Messages can be left and will be given to the person concerned at the earliest convenient time.

At Ohura Valley Primary, we are committed to providing the best educational facility for your child – we do value your input into our policies, teaching programmes and organisation.

Please feel welcome to come and talk over any issues that may concern you.
