View Road School (U4, Roll 164) is a forward thinking, bi-cultural Waiuku School (years 1 to 8) with a high number of Māori students. The school has strong connections with Ngaati Te Ata and Te Reo and Te Ao Māori are integrated into learning programmes, supported by local iwi. It has a spacious learning setting, bordering the Botanic Reserve and upper reaches of the Waiuku River. This school is strongly whanau focused, highly regarded by the community and provides outstanding 21st Century learning. The school is a hub for the provision of technology education for local primary schools.
The vision for the school is simple. A place where children and teachers strive to be the best they can be, where they feel challenged, can innovate, make mistakes and safely achieve great things. A place where good friends are made and great stories told. A place where teachers and children gain a greater understanding of the world around them, discover our nation’s heritage and celebrate who we are and where parents play an active role in supporting their children’s learning.
