Wharenui School has been at the heart of the Riccarton community since 1907, offering a quality education to children from 5 years to 13 Years. This means we are a full primary and cater for children’s needs until High School.

We are a multi-cultural school where everyone knows and cares for each other. We value diversity and cultural difference. Van Asch Junior School of the Deaf joined us in 2011 and this has added another dimension to our diversity.
Principal's Message
We want to prepare our children to be confident, capable contributors to the community in which they live.

If you are looking for a school, that will care for your child, and help her/him grow into the “best me I can be” then I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how our school might be the one for you and your  family/whanau/aiga.
