We have had two children come through Wairakei Primary School from the start of their schooling lives and this is the last year for our youngest. The support from all the teachers and support staff has been outstanding and the children have thoroughly enjoyed their time spent there. The school has a very country feel and is situated in a lovely area. We shall miss it.
