Tena koutou, nga mihi ki a koutou – Greetings to you all!
At Waikari School, we are very well resourced and invite experts across the curricula to come and work with our students. We are a part of a learning cluster of schools that include: Omihi, Greta Valley and Broomfield Schools. Our Year 7 & 8 student’s attend manual training at Hurunui College during the year. Values are deeply held beliefs detailing what our Waikari School community consider to be most important for our learners to enable them to succeed in both their local and global environments.
Waikari School encourages community support and involvement through regular school and community newsletters, informing everybody about up-coming events and meetings.

The children began the project at the beginning of 2016. They researched some of our local history as well as the various birds fish and animals that live or have lived in our area. The Kea children visited and sketched the Maori rock drawings.
Our amazing artist Shelley France is leading the project. She is teaching the children the skills required to sketch draw and paint to create a mural of this size that will tell the story of our local area. It is hoped that the mural will allow visitors to our town to gain a wealth of knowledge of our past and present.
