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 not just something we stick on a wall and forget about but it is a belief we instil in all of our students. We do not accept there are excuses for students not doing their very best. 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.
