Welcome to Wainuioru School

Wainuioru School is a decile 9, 4 teacher rural school located 22 kilometres east of Masterton in the Wairarapa.

Most of our students come from the rural areas surrounding the school.  We also have some children who travel in from Masterton. 

The work of our teachers is made easier because of our student's positive attitudes towards their learning and their school environment.  We have a very experienced  staff who are working hard as a team to provide the best possible learning opportunities for our students.    Walk into the classroom at any time of the day and you will see children who are fully engaged in their learning.

In addition we are an enviroschool and we are currently learning how our whole school environment is a resource that supports learning for sustainability.

We would love you to visit our great rural school to see us in action.  Please look through our recently upgraded website to gain an insight into our school.    At this stage we are still working on some of our new pages however most of the key information is available.

As a school we are working on developing the value of Rangatiratanga (leadership) in our students. This video explains key skills and attitudes that make great leaders.


Our graduate profile can be downloaded. These are the key skills and values that our students work towards over their time at Wainuioru School. (This is being revised currently)


Our school handbook can be downloaded, it has lots of information that may be helpful  for new families.
