    Welcome to the Rāwhiti School website.


    While this website provides a summary of information about Rāwhiti School there is nothing quite like ‘being there’. You are welcome to visit at any time.

    Rāwhiti School is a U6 Full Primary School situated in the culturally diverse Christchurch suburb of Brighton, with pupils drawn from a number of surrounding suburbs. The school has a decile rating of 3 and a current roll of 550.

    Rāwhiti School is a merger of Central New Brighton, Freeville, and North New Brighton schools. The school opened in January 2015 and was operating for its first year in the existing buildings on the Freeville and Central sites, known as the QE2 Base and Beach Base respectively. The new building in Leaver Tce is now complete and we are loving being in our new home.


    Inside, flexible learning spaces allow teachers to design learning to meet the needs of every student, so students can find a space which supports the way they need to learn. There are also areas for teachers to plan, meet collaboratively, and access resources to support the way they teach.
