Welcome to the Wakaaranga School website. At our school, the emphasis is on excellence. Our motto is “To be the best I can possibly be”. This is a belief we instil in all of our students. The core school values, ‘Respect, Responsibility and Reflection’ are extremely important to staff and students in our school. The three trees in our logo represent these three R’s.You may like to check out our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/WakaarangaSchool.
New School Report
At the end of 2015 an End of Year Progress Report or a National Standard Report was written to summarise your child’s progress and achievement. At the time we said that the new report format was a trial and that we would be surveying parent/caregivers to get feedback. Here is a link to an online survey. We would be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to provide us with some feedback. The survey closes on 27 May. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GPY5S9Z
