Waikāka School is a small rural school with a roll of around 50 students. In 2020 we have 3 classrooms operating: Room Tauwhainga (Years 5-8), Room Mahi Ngatahi (Years 2-4) and Room Noho Tahi (Years 1-2). Our teachers are Miss McCall, Mrs Miller, Miss McLeary, Mrs Taylor, Miss Poole, Mrs McKay, and Mrs Rufford. We have great support staff - Helen in the office; Carol, Sharon and Thea are our teacher aides; Julia is our cleaner and gardener.
The school is situated in the Waikāka township with fabulous grounds. We have a heated swimming pool which is used by both the school and community. The community is very supportive of the school. They have high expectations for their children and work along with the staff to achieve these.
