Welcome to Waikino School
Waikino School is a growing rural school, set in the Waikino township, approximately 7 km from the township of Waihi. We are a warm, caring community which is committed to providing outstanding educational opportunities for our children, from New Entrants,
(Year 0) through to Year 6.
In 2014 we began the year with 29 students. Our roll continued to grow in 2016, with many new entrants enrolling in our school-with families appreciating our unique curriculum and the exceptional way our new entrants transition from early childhood into school. We begin Term 1, 2017 with 53 students, a figure set to continue expanding.
We currently have two major projects in the school: The Upgrade of the Junior Block along with an upgrade of our sports court area all set to go ahead over the next year.
Please take the time to visit our school and discover for yourself why enrolling in Waikino School is a wise investment in a great local school-offering a proud tradition of academic excellence and achievement through a rich contextualised learning environment.
