Pacific Coast Highway road trip: East Cape Te Araroa

Opotiki Primary School entrance

Opotiki Primary School entrance is a striking example of Maori interpretation Opotiki Primary School entrance is a striking example of Maori interpretation

A beautiful school entrance encourages student attendance, together with a reminder of what standards were expected of nineteenth century teachers. Opotiki is a small rural town with a quiet main street. There are elements of economic deprivation with closed shops. Opotiki has to compete with Ohope beach for business as well as proximity to Whakatane. Opotiki definitely understands humour with its teacher’s instructions on good behaviour proudly displayed along with contemporary notices. The Opotiki facebook page opotikiprimary: HOME is a perfect summary of the importance of family on the Cape.
