Welcome to Wairakei Primary School

A friendly, supportive inclusive zone–free rural Taupō community based school, Wairakei Primary School welcomes year 1-6 children from Taupō rural and urban areas.

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 environment and caring community. Your child will actively be encouraged to innovate without apprehension, so they can achieve significant success rewarding them with power and confidence for lifelong learning.

Not yet enrolled? Not a problem. We'd be delighted that you join us. The school office will be open for enrolment and stationery information 9a.m.–3p.m.

We have had two children come through Wairakei Primary School from the start of their schooling lives and this is the last year for our youngest.  The support from all the teachers and support staff has been outstanding and the children have thoroughly enjoyed their time spent there.  The school has a very country feel and is situated in a lovely area.  We shall miss it.
