We are a leading New Zealand primary school that was purpose built in 2015. Our facilities are second to none. We have a large central courtyard with beautiful gardens, orchard and playing fields.

At Waitākiri our staff and children are friendly and caring. We are proud of the extra personal care and support that we provide for our international students and families. We have a tradition of academic success and achievement and we are noted for the quality of our teaching. We also provide access for international students to be involved in cultural and sporting activities and clubs.

Our school is situated in the vibrant, garden city of Christchurch. We are 5 minutes from the beach, have two golf courses close by, 1.5 hours from the ski field and are only 20 minutes from an international airport.

Please view our website and contact us if you have any questions.

Ngā mihi​,

Andrew Barker, Principal
