Rapaura School opened its doors in 1862 to a roll of about 7 students and by 1867 the numbers had doubled.  The Rapaura School, of old, has many similarities with our school today:  a very active and engaged parent community, a commitment of getting students to and from school and delivering a rich-authentic learning programme.

At Rapaura School, we REACH from within and to the community as we strive for SUCCESS.
