Welcome to Whakamārama School, a picturesque rural school located 20 minutes from downtown Tauranga in the sunny Bay of Plenty.
For us, the success of our school begins with creating a safe place for all and having a shared vision – staff, students, parents, whānau, board of trustees and community members. We encourage positive relationships and live by our mission statement ‘Growing a Positive Learning Attitude’ to ensure that the potential of each student flourishes during their time with us.
This website is a place where you can find information about our school and where we can communicate with you. Browse our site and get a feel for the learning environment we create for our students.
We welcome inquiries and feedback at any time from school families past, present and future. Please do not hesitate in contacting us if you would like to find out more about our school.

Garden to Table Working Bee
WOW! WOW! WOW! Our school garden was turned from 'ho hum' to 'AMAZING'.
On Thursday 25th March, a working bee was held to prepare our school garden for the 'Garden to Table' programme. The working bee provided opportunity for our learners to connect with parents, whānau and members of the community.
The mahi, contributions and commitment to the day have really made a difference for our tamariki. Sincere thanks to everyone for your efforts!
GoGirl is an exclusive girls' only cricket programme. Twelve girls from Whakamarama School received lessons covering the fundamental cricket skills of batting, bowling and fielding across Term 1 and thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
Wednesday 10th March hosted opportunity for our GoGirl cricketers to attend the GoGirl Festival Day - The Rainbow Cup at Blake Park, Mount Maunganui. Our team competed against other GoGirl school teams in the area, giving them the opportunity to show off their new found skills.
This is a fantastic initiative for girls sports. Thank you Bay of Plenty Cricket.
