Welcome to Whatawhata School
We Are Whatawhata School. We are a small rural full primary school just to the West of Hamilton City and at the heart of the Whatawhata Community. Our Vision is To Care, To Grow, To Achieve. We look to develop the whole child, empowering them to succeed in learning and life .
Our school curriculum is built around this vision, where we support children to enjoy learning the knowledge, skills, principles and values that help them to meet the different challenges and opportunities life brings.
Our curriculum teaches all our children both learning and life skills. Staff are committed to providing the best education for all our learners. Our size and focus on learning means we are able to develop an in-depth knowledge of their interests, strengths and needs which allows us to shape programmes accordingly.
Children develop into community members who ensure that, young and old, we all care for, support and value each other. We enjoy close relationships with our families, whaanau and the wider community.
We are committed to valuing and maintaining the unique opportunities and values of small and rural school learning.
We warmly welcome new students and family's to our school.
Currently our school website is slowly having a face lift. If you require any information that is not on this site please email the school office on firstname.lastname@example.org
