Nau mai, Haere Mai
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.

Acknowledgement of Achievement
Whakamarama Netball Team
Sport and team games are important to the development of the whole child. Sport and team games encourage participation, responsibility and personal excellence while fostering sportsmanship, positive relationships and team spirit. Term 2 unites twelve of our students (Unexpected Shadows), for the upcoming netball season - they are very excited.
Thank you to Rachel Millard from Tall Poppy Real Estate for sponsoring the team's uniforms - don’t they look amazing!
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!
