Our Story

The School Moanataiari is a state full primary school situated at the North-Western end of Thames. The school site was formed by reclaiming from the sea, land on which the tailings from the old gold mine shafts were dumped. Our school was formed by the closure of three Thames schools, Thames North, Thames Central and Kopu schools. The school was officially opened by the Hon. H.L. Pickering, Minister of Education on the 27th of May 1972.
