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.

Part of our uniqueness is the size of our school. As a smaller school we know our students well and 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.

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.
