A caring community where everyone learns and flourishes


Nau Mai Haere Mai, Welcome and Warm Pacific Greetings

Tainui School is situated on Dunedin’s south coast in close proximity to the beaches of St Kilda, St Clair and Tomahawk, and the beautiful scenery and wildlife of the Otago Peninsula.

It has been providing a high quality Year 1 to Year 6 learning environment for the community since 1929.

Our vision exemplifies that we are a caring community where everyone learns and flourishes.

We warmly welcome your interest and invite you to discover more about the education we provide.
