The priority for our Board of Trustees is to have three classrooms operating at Waiwera South School, which at the moment requires the Board to fund a teacher.
In our Junior Room with Miss Holden we have year 0-2 with 10 students. In our Middle Room with Miss Chapman we have year 3 - 5 with 16 students. In our Senior Room with Mrs Cleghorn and Mrs Bissett we have year 6-8 with 17 students.
We love our small class sizes here at Waiwera South School and with the Board of Trustees funding a third teacher this continues to happen, ensuring our students get quality time with their teachers which is crucial to their learning and development.
School times are: 9.00am-10.40am: In class 10.40am-11am: Morning tea 11.00am-12.30pm: In class 12.30pm-1.30pm: Lunch 1.30pm-3pm: In class

Waiwera Wee Ones, the community preschool programme, is held on Friday mornings from 10 am-12.00pm.
