At Waimea College we believe that every student is unique and special. We are proud of our student-centred curriculum that is technology rich and responsive to student needs; we strive to develop well-rounded, confident young adults who are equipped for our modern and changing world. We believe that every student, every day, in every class, deserves our very best effort and we strive to make sure that we live up to this expectation. We are proud of the strong rating provided to us by the Education Review Office (ERO) that confirms we are on the right path to achieving this.

As part of the information and enrolment process you are warmly invited to attend our upcoming Parent Information Evening and Open School Event.
