About Papakura Education Services

Papakura can be translated as "level land of red soil"; where better to grow the seeds of knowledge?  Papakura Education Services is South Auckland's largest specialist Education shop. 


The Papakura Resource Centre was started over 35 years ago by a group of local principals. It has grown from humble beginnings into the busy, well supported retail outlet it is today. The centre was closed recently but we are  pleased to announce that we have reopened and relocated alongside the Library and Museum at 209 Great South Rd. 


Papakura Education Services is now a privately owned kiwi business which still offers the same friendly, knowledgeable service that the Papakura Resource Centre was known for.
