Kopane School


Together we make a difference

Kopane School is a beautiful country school located 10 minutes south-west of Feilding and 10 minutes north-west of Palmerston North.

The school has very well laid-out grounds, tennis courts, gardens including an orchard, swimming pool, courtyard seating area, a large brand-new playground (opened Feb 2022), well-resourced library, hall and a large playing field, incorporating an artificial cricket pitch, surrounded by trees. The school's garden has been planned and developed by the children, to support our sustainability focus.

The Kopane School buildings consist of the main block, with two purpose-built classrooms and the admin block, a stand-alone library, and the Senior Room (formerly the Hall). The school is well equipped with a large and an up-to-date variety of modern teaching aids and devices. We competitively take part in the Te Kawau School Cluster sports and cultural tournaments.

Due to roll growth in recent years, we now operate 3 classrooms: Junior (Years 0-2), Middle (Years 3-5) and Senior (Years 5-8) rooms.

Kopane School has an incredibly supportive and proactive community, getting in behind the school with working bees, quiz nights, fundraisers and assistance with field trips and camps. We are also fortunate to have a highly committed staff and a passionate Principal who started at Kopane School in August 2021.
