Whakamarama School is a friendly, attractive school, 20 minutes from Tauranga, Bay of Plenty. The school caters for New Entrants to Year 8 students.
Established in 1914, Whakamarama School has its own special character. Being a Rural School, we have plenty of opportunities to use the outdoors in our learning programmes.
Our school is an Enviro-School on a unique sustainability journey. Through exploration, discovery and connections with the environment our students experience how to make decisions and take action to improve the physical and social environment of our places, our community and our world.
Whakamarama School has a teaching staff of 3.6, who are proud of the ideal learning conditions such as small class sizes, excellent resources, parent support and highly motivated, innovative students.
Students of Whakamarama School are able to participate in The Arts with tutors and sport providers regularly visit the school to teach skills in sports. We value Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC) and current Up-to-Date Computer Technology.
