Introducing Hokowhitu School
Hokowhitu School is located in central Palmerston North, and we work hard to provide a supportive, caring, and positive environment for our children.
Our roll is currently around 380 students, and our children come from more than thirty different cultures. We are categorised as Decile 7 by the Ministry of Education.
We have an extensive playground and a swimming pool. We are also able to make use of the neighbouring Hokowhitu Park.
Hokowhitu School was opened in February 1924, and the Albert Street frontage—including our bell tower—is a Category II listed historic building.
