Kia ora and welcome to Balfour School
We are a small, rural, family orientated school located in Northern Southland, New Zealand. We benefit from making the most of the natural local environment and use geographical and agricultural features in our learning programmes. With beaches, native bush, lakes and snow covered mountains all just a short drive away, our students enjoy school camps exploring the forests, mountains, snow skiing, tramping, fishing, boating and learning about the history of Otago and Southland.
