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 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.
