Our School/Community

Ngunguru is located 24 kms north east of Whangārei, situated along the scenic Tutukaka coast. Ngunguru is a growing coastal community approximately 20 minutes drive from the outskirts of Whangarei, which is 2 hours north of Auckland.

The school is situated at the mouth of the Ngunguru estuary surrounded by native bush.  This unique rural/coastal location supports a wonderful learning environment for our children.  This plays an important role within the school and is integrated at every opportunity into the school curriculum.  The school’s pool (the Pacific Ocean) is accessed regularly for our aquatics programme which is a feature of the school.

Ngunguru School serves the larger population base of the Tutukaka coast. The school is a full state primary catering for students Years 0-8.  The school has a current roll of approximately 240 students.

The school is serviced by buses provided by the Ministry of Education that enables the children within the district to attend.

Business and services available in the local area include general store, medical centre, hardware, restaurants, sports complex, golf course and many more.  Quality accommodation is available on the coast.

The Tutukaka coast is a popular holiday destination with an ever-increasing number of permanent residents resulting in flourishing coastal development.
