Welcome to Waitoriki School
Active in Learning: Loving to Learn
Mātātoa ki roto i te akoranga: Aroha ki te Ako
Kia Ora. Welcome to Waitoriki School community. Waitoriki is a growing school with a current roll of 58. We are rural full primary situated just 3.6km East of Inglewood on Lincoln Road. Our tamariki work collaboratively across Kauri, Kowhai and Totara akomanga (learning spaces), named to celebrate the mature trees in our school grounds. We have a strong emphasis on our enviro-schools program, the Key Competencies, STEAM ( Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths), and play/inquiry based learning. Our school prides itself for our friendly whanau atmosphere and our holistic approach to education. We trust your association with our school will be a long and happy one.
Welcome to Term 1 2022
A new year, a new beginning.
This year we are looking forward to a less interrupted school year, however, we are prepared for everything (well most things which may eventuate at school).
Being the warmest term being sunsmart is a top priority, especially as we spend so much of our days outside with swimming in the afternoons and often a lunch time swim as well.
This term we have welcomed our third teacher to our staff. It is very nice to now be a 3 teacher school, our little school is no longer so little and over the past few years has grown from strength to strength.
Major events this term include
Whole school camp
Parent open evening
Check out our Calendar page for more information.
We look forward to a wonderful year with all our new and returning families.
