Nga mihi ki a koutou

Whakamaru School is a vibrant, lively and caring learning community where we celebrate learning and achieving together. The school caters for children from primary school years 1 to 8 and is situated on beautiful grounds, beside the Whakamaru Village. We are 10 minutes’ drive from Mangakino, 20 minutes from Tokoroa and 30 minutes from Taupo.

Our school engages 21st Century learners with quality Inquiry learning. Extensive digital technologies in every classroom expands student opportunities to participate in our global community.

We give our students a voice in their education so they feel positive about themselves and take ownership of their learning.  They are supported by a skilled, caring and hardworking team of professionals who set the tone with high expectations and who provide excellent student-centred learning opportunities.

Students, staff and whanau are supported by a dedicated Board of Trustees and a small but active PTA. We are proud of our links to our local community.

Parents and visitors are always welcome in our school and are encouraged to share in their child’s learning.

Thank you for taking time to find out more about Whakamaru School. We look forward to welcoming you and working alongside you and your child.
