Orewa North West Primary School was announced by the Government as part of the 2018 Budget: Vote Education. This school will be a Year 1-6 contributing school and is designed to create a fresh new centre of modern learning which looks to the future whilst encouraging close ties with the community


It will provide contemporary ‘innovative learning environments’ offering a variety of well-connected learning spaces utilising the latest building materials and technologies. Flexible teaching spaces allow the ability to cater for a wide range of learner interests and the ability to deliver a modern, innovative curriculum that will have a focus on learning for all to succeed.


The first stage of the build will have the infrastructure hall, library, playground and administration for 700 students – the proposed overall roll. However, the first stage of building will be to accommodate a roll of 420 students. 


Orewa North West Primary School will open in January 2023 with a projected roll of 150 students by the end of the year. 


The Establishment Board of Trustees are excited to announce the appointment of our Foundation Principal, Steve Mouldey. Steve started with us during January 2022. He brings to our school exceptional leadership experience from his previous role as Principal of AGE School in Takapuna. His commitment to wellbeing, passion-based learning and student achievement identified him as the outstanding candidate to be the Foundation Principal for our new school. 


On behalf of the Establishment Board of Trustees, we look forward to working with the local community and neighbouring schools to help shape the future of education for our tamariki.

Board Chairperson

We are proud to share with you the new name for our school - Nukumea Primary School.

The Ministry of Education, the Establishment Board of Trustees and tangata whenua have been working together to gift a name to our school and community that reflects the unique local history of the area. This new name was gifted to us by Ngati Whatua o Kaipara and references Nukumea Stream which flows through our environment - along the border of the Pacific Heights Development, down through Alice Eaves Reserve and out into the sea at Orewa Beach. 

Our Leadership Team have spent time this year walking the paths beside Nukumea Stream and researching the history of our area. Understanding our local history is very important for us and if you have any extra information on the history of our area, please make contact with our Principal, Steve Mouldey on

The Leadership Team and Establishment Board have now started working with local Orewa brand designer Aaron Hall to develop a logo and branding for Nukumea Primary School.
