We are a full primary school (that means we have 5 year olds -Year ones - right up to twelve and thirteen year olds -Year eights), 15 minutes south of Hastings or Havelock North, Hawke's Bay. We have both town and country students going to our school. At present we have a school of 105 pupils. We run our own bus, and this bus picks up most of the kids who go to our school. Some children come by car or bike, and a few walk.
