Welcome to Waikite Valley School

Developing Learners for Life

Principal's Welcome

Kia ora – welcome to Waikite Valley School

We are an awesome, progressive country school situated in a picturesque valley 26km South-East of Rotorua. 

We are fortunate to be surrounded by several beautiful lakes, thermal waters and hot springs and the famous Waikite Valley Hot Pools. The Paeroa Ranges dominate the landscape and are a breathtaking sight on a clear day. 

Our strong rural community is made up of dairy and sheep farmers and lifestyle blocks. It is very supportive of our school, with an active PTA and an excellent parent and community base. 

At the heart of Waikite Valley is our school – come and see us! We have a current roll of 90 awesome kids and 5 classes.
