Welcome to Firth Primary School, Matamata.

Firth Primary is a contributing primary school located in Matamata in the heart of the Waikato.   
I am proud to be the Principal in the school I attended for all my primary education.
We currently have 9 classrooms operating from New Entrants to Year 6.  The school prides itself on the positive relationships it has with the community, and the quality of the learning programmes.  We encourage all Firth family members to take an active part in our school.  We enhance cultural, educational, sporting, environmental and social development. Central to our philosophy is being the best we can be. We pride ourselves on our physical environment and are a proud Enviro -School. The school is an attractive with well maintained grounds, gardens and buildings.
You are most welcome to visit our school.  Contact the office so we can proudly show you our school.
