Home, Meeanee School
Welcome to


Meeanee School is a vibrant small school on the fringe of Napier city.   We cater for children from Years 1 to 8. Children transition from us to a range of High Schools in Napier.

The school is set just off Meeanee Road in Gavin Black Street, 5 minutes from Taradale and central Napier. There is a community hall, playgroup and sports stadium adjoining the school property. Children enjoy the use of extensive grounds which include:  swimming pool, playing fields, hard court area, adventure playground, sandpit, bike track, edible orchard and gardening area.

Currently we have 4 classrooms which have all been modernized to meet the current standards. The school can accommodate 100 children and roll numbers are just below that.  We have a new Multipurpose space almost completed which has a Library attached.  Our Multipurpose space will allow our students to enjoy our range of extra curricular activities. The Board of Trustees has invested in an extra portable classroom for visiting professionals to use and for small group teaching.

As a school we are very lucky to have a supportive Board of Trustees and PTA group who invest in the future of our students.

Our school is heavily into sports and although small manage to enter teams into the likes of Volleyball, Basketball, Netball, and Canoe Polo to name just a few.  We also enter events such as Tough Kids, Barefoot 7’s, and Beach 5’s.

The school is a member of the Whirinaki Community of Learning (Kahui Ako). This geographically spread but pedagogically close community includes the following schools: Maraekakaho, Twyford, St Josephs, Mayfair, Karamu HS, St.Johns College, Clive, Pakowhai and ourselves.

The school has a strong focus on core curriculum and our own Meeanee School curriculum.
