Kia ora! Nau mai, haere mai ki te Kura ō Te Awahou

Our kura was established in 1857, and has been a cornerstone of educational excellence ever since. We treasure every student as a taonga (treasure) and are dedicated to nurturing them to reach their full potential.

Today, our kura provides comprehensive education from Year 1 to Year 8. We offer two Bilingual Level 3 classes and two Rumaki Level 1 classes, alongside Te Pā Harakeke o Te Awahou, our on-site māori medium Early Childhood Education (ECE) center.

At Foxton Primary, our passion for Te Reo Māori runs deep. It's more than just teaching a language; it's about preserving a cultural legacy and empowering our tamariki to embrace their identity with confidence and pride. While we are proud to be the sole providers of rumaki classes for primary-aged tamariki in the Horowhenua, rest assured that alongside our focus on Te Reo Māori, we offer robust and comprehensive learning in english, reading, writing, and math too.

As a vibrant and modern kura, we provide a high-quality bilingual learning experience that fosters a love for learning in both languages. Our commitment to fostering positive behavior and creating a supportive learning environment is evident as a proud Tier 2 PB4L school.

Choosing to learn in our kura means choosing a nurturing and inclusive environment, where every child and their whānau are not just welcomed but embraced, supported, and valued.

We look forward to welcoming you into our space, which serves as a second home to many within our community. Don't hesitate to reach out and connect with us today.

Behavior Management Plan
20 Mar 2024

Foxton Primary School is building a management plan that will change how students look at school
and their community. The plan is to adjust student behavior and some of the flow on effects COVID
has had on our school and the community. COVID is responsible for all sorts of issues in our
community. However, it is not responsible for low self-esteem, lowering of expectations, accepting
failure as a norm and poor core based values. Setting high expectations will support and grow
resilient, reliable and honest young men and woman. Our behavior plan is incentive based and will
require students and families to commit to the plan.
All students in all levels will have expectations that are achievable. Working towards goals and
aspirations. However, all year 8 students will adhere to
