We have a proud history of achievement, sporting  success and  community involvement.  We have a strong focus on Literacy and Mathematics, as well as providing many opportunities for our children to participate in sporting and cultural activities.


Norsewood and Districts is a rural, co-educational, full primary school with students drawn from the catchment area of Te Uri, Ormondville, Whetukura, Makotuku, Matamau and Norsewood districts. We are situated approximately 20 kilometres North of Dannevirke in a dairy, beef and sheep farming area.

Norsewood School was established in 1873 and became a merged school in 2004. The School has a proud Scandinavian heritage and participates in Norway Constitution Day celebrations each year.

At Scallywaggs we value the diversity of our families and aim to develop respectful partnerships where cultures, values and aspirations are acknowledged.

Our passionate kaiako pride themselves in offering an environment that is welcoming, fun, nurturing and stimulating.  Each child is unique and as such we provide a program which will support and celebrate their individual milestones, strengths and emerging skills.

Strong attachments are formed with every child enabling the opportunity for children to develop confidence, independence and resilience through play based learning opportunities.  Successful transitions are supported between centres when children are developmentally ready.
