REMARKABLE THINGS HAPPEN EVERY DAY AT WHANGAMARINO!

Welcome. Whangamarino School is a dynamic, inspiring, dual medium Year 1-8 school  set in the heart of Okere Falls, looking over beautiful Lake Rotoiti.  Whangamarino offers an educational experience designed to inspire individual achievement, strong personal values and confidence for life.  

As a parent or whanau, your choice to send your son or daughter to Whangamarino is a choice that will create and shape their amazing future.  Whangamarino gives your child the opportunity to learn in either English or Maori (total immersion) in classes that have low numbers. We welcome all students passionate about learning Te Reo Maori regardless of their Te Reo Maori ability.  We embrace our  unique Ngati Pikiao identity which stems from years of being part of the local communities of Mourea, Otaramarae and Okere Falls. The staff are dedicated, committed and professional, work hard and have a passion for teaching. We have an ‘open door’ policy and we encourage you to communicate with us at any time.

Remarkable things happen every day at Whangamarino.
