Policies & Procedures

We are located in the northwest reaches of the Waikato near the rugged, yet beautiful west coast of the North Island.

Our school provides many learning opportunities for children from 5 to 13 years of age, from year 1 to 8.

Established in 1924 with a roll of 16 students, Waikaretu School has a long and successful history steeped in strong community spirit. Our rural environment provides tourism and farming-related opportunities for the community. Waikaretu School is strongly connected to our local community and is supported by two local marae: Pukerewa Marae and Weraroa Marae. 

Our curriculum empowers our learning community to make connections to and from our rural context. We support our learners to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become resilient, critical thinkers who actively achieve their goals in a connected world.
