It is my pleasure, as Principal, to introduce you to Taumarunui High School. We have a proud tradition of welcoming international students from across the globe to our school, and support every student to feel like they belong in our wonderful part of the world. Our town is centrally positioned between Auckland and Wellington in the Heart of New Zealand’s North Island. Taumarunui is located near the foot of Mount Ruapehu and at the convergence of the Whanganui and Ongarue rivers. Our school is steeped in tradition and opportunity, and we offer a high quality education in a caring, friendly environment. Read more...

I enjoy my sports, rugby is my passion at the moment. This year will be my second year playing for Taumarunui High School First XV. I can’t wait to run onto the field with my fellow players. I call them brothers. The reason I call them brothers, is because the First XV isn’t just a team, we are a family and we look after each other no matter what. We also keep up with our four A’s because if any one of us ignore the rules then it reflects back on all of us. Read more...

  • I really enjoyed the sports and outdoor programmes the school offered. The friends I made were really cool and made me feel like I was at home. We went on lots of trips around New Zealand and I loved my stay there. I’m going to really miss my friends and this was definitely an experience of a lifetime.
