Kuranui College

Kuranui College was opened in 1960 and is situated in the town of Greytown in the South Wairarapa. The South Wairarapa is a region which specialises in sheep, beef and dairy farming. It is also internationally acclaimed for its wonderful wines, in particular, Pinot Noir.

The Wairarapa is an outdoor adventurer’s paradise. There is outstanding hiking in mountains up to 1500 metres just a few kilometres from the college; kayaking and white water rafting take place in the region’s crystal clear rivers. Surfers and divers can take advantage of the region’s spectacular coastline; there is superb river and sea fishing and the region’s forest parks boast some of New Zealand’s best game hunting.

Kuranui College boasts a large and attractive campus with large areas of open space and a number of sports grounds. We have a gymnasium that includes a weights room, climbing wall and basketball court. There are also rugby fields, two soccer fields, netball/tennis courts and a multi-sport artificial turf.

The college has recently embarked on an ambitious plan to modernise the whole campus. A new suite of seven Science & Mathematics classrooms was completed in 2012. A new Visual Arts suite was opened in 2017, and the English / Social Science block is due for a major renovation in 2018.

Cultural activities are based in our Performing Arts Centre which includes a fully equipped 300-seat auditorium with tiered seating, specialist drama and music rooms, as well as a recording studio and a professional dance studio.

We have a number of outstanding information technology facilities which cater for both Windows and Apple Mac. Our classrooms are well equipped with data projectors and wireless data systems to allow teachers to fully incorporate information technology into all aspects of student learning. We also have a cafeteria, a well resourced library and a purpose built Student Centre.

The Community

Greytown is in the Wairarapa region, 80 kilometres north-west of Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city. Greytown is a small town of around 2300 people and is very proud of its historic heritage. It is also well known in New Zealand’s history as the place where the indigenous Maori people first established their own parliament.
