Small Class Sizes

Matahui has committed to providing the best possible education by ensuring that class sizes are kept small (average of 17). This means students get the individual learning experiences needed to flourish.   Our motivated and passionate staff understand that children learn and develop in different ways – small class sizes allow our teachers to provide children with the attention they need to flourish.


Warm Welcoming Atmosphere

The school culture and atmosphere at Matahui School is special! A judgement free zone where differences are valued and appreciated.  As a result our school grounds feel safe and welcoming.  Come for a visit to experience this for yourself.
