Te kura Tuarua o Tawera | Darfield High School

Welcome.  We are a true community school, serving the beautiful rural area of Tawera | Malvern, bordered by the Rakaia river to the south and Waimakariri River to the north, and centred around the town of Darfield. 

We aim to make sure that every single student enjoys their experience of the school and learns capabilities, knowledge and values that equip them to lead healthy, fulfilling lives and to contribute positively to the communities they grow up to live in.
