Waikaretu School - Striving for Excellence

School Grounds

The community can use the school grounds outside of school hours, during the week and weekends. If using the grounds, please be respectful of school property and remove all rubbish before leaving. Please remember that alcohol is NOT to be consumed on the school grounds and the site is a SMOKE FREE zone.


NB: After school, children who wish to play on our school grounds, must go home first before returning to play. Children at school should always have a parent/adult supervising them whilst on the school grounds outside of school hours.  

Hiring the Community Room (School Library)

Local organisations and families are welcome to enquire about the hiring of the community room outside of school hours.  Please enquire at the school office for more details.


Swimming Pool


School families and members of the community are welcome to use the pool (out of school hours) during the swimming season, after purchasing a key and signing the Swimming Pool agreement.  A family fee of $25 is payable for the season, with a refundable key bond of $5 returned at the end of the season.

Keys are only to be used by the immediate family that purchased it. If extended family or friends of family wish to use the school pool throughout the season, they may do so by prior arrangement with the school office. Cost for one-off use is $5.00 per visit. Keys can be purchased from the school office before school closes at the end of the year. 
Failure to adhere to these rules may result in loss of keys.
