Our Kura

Kia Ora!

Te Kura o Waitati – Waitati School is a special little place – a real country school, but 15 minutes from the city! We welcome visits and appreciate that choosing a school is not always a ‘one stop shop’. Please do peruse the pages of our website to get a feel for the place. don’t hesitate to telephone the office if you’d like to come and have a look around..


The Enviroschools programme supports children and young people to plan, design and implement sustainability actions that are important to them and their communities. The programme provides pathways from early childhood through primary, intermediate and secondary school and beyond. Through our collaborative approach of building strong relationships and sharing information, we are growing a collective puna mātauranga or pool of knowledge.


The Blueskin Playcentre is a fantastic, purpose built, early childhood centre and you can find them on site! We run a transition program for four year olds to ensure the best possible start to school.
