Together we make a differenceWELCOME TO KOPANE SCHOOL

Thank you for visiting the Kopane School website.  We hope that you will find what you are looking for or will simply enjoy perusing this site.

The aim of this site is to inform, educate, remind, celebrate, promote and basically to give you all of the information you might need about a very special school in the Manawatu.

The school was officially opened on the first of September 1925 with a roll of 28 pupils.  Since that time the school has survived fires, flooding and the threat of closure several times because of low pupil numbers.

One thing that hasn’t changed however is the pride that the school takes in providing a quality small school rural education to the children of the community.

The school is very well served by well laid out grounds, tennis courts, garden area, swimming pool, courtyard seating area, a large playground, well-resourced library, multi-purpose room and a large playing field, incorporating a synthetic cricket wicket, surrounded by trees.  

The school building itself consists of two classrooms and the facilities you’d expect within them. ActivBoards are installed in both rooms and the school is generally equipped with a large and an up to date variety of modern teaching aids.

If you would like to find out more about anything associated with the school please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
