General Description of the School



Āria School is one of the oldest schools in the district beginning in 1908 with 11 pupils. The first building was erected in 1909 and still stands today, currently serving as the Āria Playcentre.

The school has three permanent classrooms along with an art classroom and large library.

The school is well equipped with digital devices, which we are constantly upgrading. All students have access to PCs, Chrome Books or iPads within their classrooms. All classrooms have teaching stations that include a 42-inch screen. We have wireless capability throughout the school.

A large playground includes concrete areas, a 12-metre shade area, a large fixed adventure play area, a fenced turf court, covered sandpit, solar heated and covered swimming pool with shade area and a sports field with a fitness trail surrounding it.  Extensive gardens and a native tree area add to a great rural school setting.

Āria School has a professional and highly motivated staff who strive to give the best education possible.
