Whether you are visiting our site to find out more about Te Hihi School, or a parent wanting to access information; welcome, nau mai, haere mai.
The school's motto of Character ~ Kindness ~ Courtesy is built into our school culture and always at the forefront. Along with our motto, our vision statement is "Creating the grounding for future growth". Our vision has four strands to it; preparing our students to be global citizens, connecting with real life learning through a balanced curriculum, acknowledging stewardship of the land (kaitiaki), and valuing positive relationships. The full vision statement is available from the school office.
Te Hihi School started life on 9 March 1914 and on the weekend of 7-9 March 2014 the school celebrated its centennial. Many thanks to all who helped make the weekend a success. We hope that all our ex-students and staff who attended enjoyed the weekend as much as the rest of us.

1990 Time Capsule
On the weekend of the centennial, those who attended that buried the time capsule way back in 1990 lifted it up again. After some humour and concern over where it was actually buried, it was finally discovered and lifted only to find that the contents were stuck together with moisture.
The school has been in touch with a paper conservator at the Auckland Art Gallery and we hope we will be able to unravel the pages of work so that they can be read.
