你好, Namaste, 안녕하세요, hola.

A warm welcome to Wairau Intermediate School.


2021 marks the start of new beginnings – a year of new experiences and opportunities.

As the new Principal of our school, the essence of my vision is that we create a safe and inclusive school culture, where students excel academically, socially and emotionally and our leaders of the future are inspired to contribute, through the collaborative efforts of students, staff and the school community.

Our qualified and professional staff hold a strong belief in nurturing our future, our students. Therefore, whether Year 7 or Year 8, we encourage all students to make the most of their time with us. With all that Wairau has to offer; cultural, sporting, social and academic, our students are motivated to become involved in the life of the school. It is their opportunity to form new friendships and to enjoy the next phase of their educational journey.

The school logo is derived from a Maori water pattern representing the meaning of Wairau, “an abundance of water”. In the sense that water is essential for growth, Wairau Intermediate aims to provide learning opportunities essential for adolescent development.

I also see these waters as representing our people – by bringing these waters together we can form a strong partnership and in turn use these positive relationships  -“Whanaungatanga” to jointly influence the growth of our students.

Situated on the North Shore, our school is a variable space, Intermediate School. As the school continues to grow and develop we welcome you to our school and encourage you to participate and engage with us throughout your child’s time at Intermediate.

Enjoy exploring our school website and sharing in our celebrations and successes.
