Wairakei Primary School makes it into 'Top 10 Education Trends for 2019', Core Education publication.

Ten Trends group had been searching our website for a while and used our 'Modern learning' link to share with schools both nationally and internationally. You can check us out on this link. It is a big thing to be acknowledged for the work our teachers do in the classrooms. It is great to see our students using our concept of 'Learn it Prove it'. It’s such a great concept.
