Whenuakite School celebrated its Centenary during Easter 2008.
Whenuakite is a great place to learn and a wonderful place to work. The community is very supportive and the school has positive relationships with local schools, pre-school facilities and agencies.
The school provides a place where children are challenged, achieve academic excellence and develop respect for themselves and others. Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and there is a focus on individual needs, abilities and talents, and developing independence. Children enjoy coming to school; they know their rights and responsibilities, they are challenged and supported in their learning, they are accepted for whom they are and they learn to get on with other people.
Our aim is for children to leave school with an appreciation of the values and skills that will help them to succeed in society.
