What to Expect

Whenuakite School is a U3 School with between 120 and 140 pupils, Years 1 to 8. The school has a staffing entitlement of 7.1 and the decile rating is 8. The community and BOT have worked hard to ensure the school is well resourced and has excellent facilities.
The New Zealand Curriculum consists of eight learning areas. We naturally have a focus on literacy and numeracy but the arts, health and physical activity, and topic study areas are all important and are also well covered.
