The Toki Pounamu cluster is a group of thirteen schools on the West Coast of the South Island of Aotearoa, New Zealand. The cluster spans a region from Kokatahi near Hokitika, to Greymouth, Ahaura and Moana, a distance of about one hundred kilometres from south to north.  
Two secondary schools, Greymouth High and Westland High, and eleven primary schools, Grey Main, Paroa, Kaniere, Kumara, Karoro, St Patrick's, Blaketown, Paparoa Range, Lake Brunner, Kokatahi-Kowhitirangi, and Awahono schools form the cluster.
During 2015 ten schools were accepted onto the Manaiakalani Education Trust's Outreach programme, three more schools join in 2017. The positive benefits include digital enablement (1:1 Chromebooks), and access to intensive professional development for digital immersion, and the Learn, Create, Share pedagogy. The priority goal is to raise student achievement, particularly in writing and mathematics.
