Pungarehu is a small town located on Surf Highway 45 in Taranaki, New Zealand. Pungarehu is the home of the Cape Lighthouse, situated at Taranaki's westernmost point. The town centre is located almost 5 km from the coast line.
Pungarehu School was a primary school in Pungarehu. It held a consistent roll of around 50 students, and catered for years 1-8.
The school was forced to close in 2003, due to a review of the New Zealand school system by the Ministry of Education. The school buildings are still located on the corner of Cape Road and are yet to be used. Currently, the Pungarehu area is accessed by the bus routes of Coastal Taranaki School, Opunake Middle School and Rahotu Primary School.
