Kaukapakapa School

Nau mau ki te kura o Kaukapakapa

Kau: to swim; kapakapa: splashing, or flapping.

When the many wild ducks in the creek were hunted there was much flapping of wings

Kaukapakapa School is situated on the Kaipara Coast Highway on land owned by Ngati Whatua.   We are closely affiliated to the 5 Kaipara marae of Araparera, Kakanui, Puatahi, Haranui and Reweti.  Originally settled by Europeans in 1869, The Kaukapakapa Public School first opened in 1873 with seventeen pupils. 

Now a modern, vibrant and innovative school of approximately 300 students from Year 1 – 8, we appreciate the significant history that surrounds us, but are excited about creating citizens of the future through excellent learning opportunities across the New Zealand Curriculum.  Please phone the school office to make a time to view all we have to offer within our environment.
