Making a Difference
Wainuiomata Primary School was founded in 1857 and is situated at the south end of the Wainuiomata Valley. Wainuiomata Primary has a student roll of over 330 with an ethnic composition of European (44%), Māori (47%), Pasifika (7%) and other ethnicities (2%).
Our school community is both suburban and rural. The school community values the importance of good communication between the various groups that make up our school – children, whānau parents/caregivers, Board of Trustees, leadership, teachers and support staff. We recognise that good communication enhances teaching and learning and helps build positive, collaborative relationships between home and school.
Wainuiomata Primary School is a U5, Decile 4 contributing school catering for students from Years 1 to 6. We are a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) school where students are provided with an emotionally supportive environment. We aim to create a climate of support and respect for individual and cultural differences.
