Our School




We are now open and operating under Public Health Alert Level 2 rules and guidelines. What a pleasure it is to be back together again as a school family under our ‘new safe normal’.

Due to health and safety requirements, including contact tracing regulations, please email office@tainui.school.nz, text 027 308 9016, or call (03) 455 0566 rather than dropping in to see us unannounced. We wish to be our usual welcoming selves, but we are conscious of the absolute need to keep everyone healthy and safe too!

Flexible distance learning is continuing to be provided for those unable to physically return to school.  Please go to our Home Learning page if you would like some guidance about how to help at home.



Tainui School is situated on Dunedin’s south coast and in close proximity to St Kilda, St Clair and Tomahawk beaches and the beautiful scenery and wildlife of the Otago Peninsula.  It has been providing a high quality Year 1 to Year 6 teaching and learning environment for the local community since 1929. We warmly welcome your interest and invite you to find out more about us by visiting the other pages of this site.
