Waiau Pa is a semi-rural school located 15 mins from Papakura and Pukekohe. 

The school is set in magnificent grounds with native trees, extensive play areas and attractive buildings and classrooms. There are approximately 350 pupils years 1-8.

At Waiau Pa, our core business is teaching & learning, providing nothing but the best experiences for our students both in and out of, the classroom.

What a Suprise! 

On Thursday 16th February, we welcomed some special guests from Ebbet Pukekohe.

Early in November 2022, Ebbet Pukekohe approached Mr. Clark with a sponsership deal. They would give us a school van to use for school events and travel if we advertised their business.  Ebbet Pukekohe are known for supporting schools, and sports teams. Locals supporting locals. 

Kaiya Smith and Andy Jackson came to our school to give us this gift. Waiau Pa School held a Whakatau to welcome them into our community and show gratitude for their generous gift to our school. 

Everyone is so grateful for this van, and we look forward to using it for sports events, Jump Jam, William Pike, and more. 

Thank you Ebbet Pukekhoe.
