Raumati South is approximately a 45 minute drive from the capital of New Zealand, Wellington. Te Ra Waldorf School is about a 45 minute drive from our local Waldorf Upper School, Raphael House in Belmont, Lower Hutt. Te Ra Waldorf School sits amidst regenerating Kanuka forest on the edge of the Raumati South township which is about a 5 minute drive from Paraparaumu, the nearest shopping centre.

The school site is a flat 5 acre site, sitting on sand, peat and iron sand. Te Ra Waldorf School and 3 of the 5  Te Rawhiti Kindergartens, plus a Nursery class and Playgroup for parent and child are situated at this site. The land is surrounded by Kanuka and Manuka forest and has many fruit trees and gardens, with some very large established specimen trees, including silver birches,  sycamores, plane trees, rhododendrons and magnolias. There are many native trees on the site and we are in the process of planting a native forest.


Te Rawhiti Kindergarten in Paekakariki is a converted home complete with fire place and gardens and houses the 2 other Te Rawhiti Kindergarten groups and a Playgroup for parent and child. It is situated at the northern end of Paekakariki, very near the entrance to Queen Elizabeth regional park, a 650 hectare coastal park.   http://youtu.be/fDouyv7EMKQ
