‘Active in Learning, Active in Life’

Kia ora and welcome to the Waipawa School website.  It is a privilege to lead such a fantastic school that is the heart of the Waipawa Community.  Our school has a friendly environment, high expectations and all staff involved in the school aspire to meet our vision of being “Active in Learning, Active in Life’.

We aim for our school to have a friendly, caring and family-oriented environment.  We believe our key is happy children who are motivated to learn, with parents feeling comfortable to join in the learning process.  We see education of children as a partnership between home and school. We value parent input and invite parents and caregivers to share in the development and progress of their child/ren at school.

We aim to provide a range of challenging learning opportunities within the classroom and beyond and to enable the learner to develop his/her own individual potential.  We believe in educating the whole child – intellectual, cultural, social, emotional, physical – in exciting and creative ways.

Thanks for visiting our website.  You are most welcome to visit and experience the positive learning atmosphere our school has to offer.  Come along and see what goes on in our school.
