Our educational mission is simple, yet significant—Wairakei Primary School works in partnership with our community to grow our children into confident lifelong learners.
Your child will learn in a supportive caring community environment. They'll be actively encouraged to innovate without apprehension, so they can achieve significant success, rewarding them with power and confidence for lifelong learning.
Please note: Wairakei Primary School is governed by a Ministry of Education established enrolment scheme (zoned).
Please refer to the documents showing the map of the zoned area and a full written description outlining the boundaries and the priorities as to how out of zone students are able to apply for a place at our school.
