Welcome to Whitiora School, a great little school in the heart of the city.  We are an innovative, vibrant school on the cutting edge of teaching and learning utilising digital technology to enhance all curriculum areas.

Our Philosophy

Learning is our core business and we ensure that this is the focus and priority in every decision we make. We believe in empowering our learners to be self-directed, self-motivated, and to know what their next steps in their learning are. Developing creativity, collaboration, critical and reflective thinking within our innovative learning environments is paramount.

Innovative Learning Environment

We have been learning in Innovative Learning Environments (I.L.E’s) since the beginning of 2013.  These were built brand new and they enable ‘collaboration’ to function at its highest level.  Staff collaborate together, pupils collaborate together in their learning and collaboration occurs between teachers and pupils on a daily basis.

If you would like to view the school or talk to any one of us, make contact with us soon and we'll arrange a time to take you for a tour of our school and to discuss your goals for you and your children.

Whitiora School look forward to partnering with you to ensure that your children are learning in a dynamic, evolving, cutting-edge environment.
