About Us


Our School and Community

Portland School is a small, well-resourced rural school located 10 minutes south of Whangarei.  There is a kindergarten situated on the school’s boundary that serves the wider community.  Most of the school’s students are transported to the school on the board-financed school bus.  There is a history of family connections with the school and many students have parents and whanau who have attended.  Seventy five percent of students are Maori and many are of Nga Puhi descent.
