Arrowtown School provides a dynamic, future focused learning environment in which all children are encouraged and supported to achieve their personal best.
We are a state-funded, co-educational school. It is a full primary school catering for the learning needs of children aged 5 to 13 (Years 1-8). The current school roll is approximately 508.
We foster a positive attitude towards learning, encourage pride in performance and a desire for all children to 'go for gold' - our longstanding school motto. This is important academically, but also through sporting, performing arts and cultural opportunities.
We have a long tradition of being a focal point for the local community having access to a wide range of opportunities for engaging with the natural environment and outdoor activities, which the school actively supports.
Arrowtown School will provide a dynamic, future focused learning environment in which all children are encouraged and supported to achieve their personal best.
Our vision is for every child to be able to go for GOLD, to be confident, connected and adaptive, now and in the future.
