Welcome to Wairakei Primary School

A friendly, supportive inclusive rural Taupō community school for year 1-6 children.

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.

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.
