Who We Are

Pukehou School is a tranquil rural school situated on State Highway 2, fifteen minutes south of Hastings and fifteen minutes north of Waipukurau. With approximately 108 pupils ranging in age from 5 to 13 years and with such good accessible routes, it makes Pukehou School one of the most preferred schools in Hawke’ Bay.

Pukehou School is a Green/Gold Enviroschool, one of only five schools in New Zealand to achieve this honour. This status was reaffirmed in November 2009. The school is headed up by School Principal AJ Eaglestone with Deputy Principal Rachael Strong, accompanied by four other full time teachers, two teacher relief personnel and one full time office administrator.


“Nau mai Haere Mai, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you.

Pukehou School is a wonderful rural school with beautiful grounds, happy children and dedicated, hardworking, caring teachers and staff. Our vision is to produce confident, inquisitive children who demonstrate the development of a range of Habits of the Mind which will enable them to be resourceful, socially responsible citizens.

Please come and visit us at Pukehou School anytime, all are welcome.”

Principal: AJ Eaglestone
