To share the history of Aranga School I need to mention Katui, as it was a union of Katui, Mangatu and Tutamoe settlers that had Katui School built by the Fosters brothers and opened on the 14th of April 1897.

Aranga settlers opened Aranga School on the 4th of April, 1905 in a private house owned by Mr B Williams.  Aranga and Katui were half-time schools.  In 1914 Aranga and Katui School became full time schools.

In 1951 a new Aranga School was built, with a schoolhouse nextdoor.

Therefore Aranga School is 118 years old.
