Our History

Roseneath School was established on Point Jerningham in 1898.


It has been said that at one time the land had been the site of Te Wai Hirere – a stockaded village of Ngai Tara. Te Wai Hirere means “the gushing water”.


Heavy rain had occurred while the Pa was being constructed and a flood swept over the site causing temporary havoc.


The first school building was destroyed by fire on the 29th of May 1926. In the 1930’s the Roseneath School Roll grew to over 300 and a Roseneath Side School was set up in Hataitai.


The school was remodeled in 1978 and again in 1999 when a second story was added to accommodate the growing roll.
