Valuing our Children, Celebrating Success

Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou

Welcome to Worser Bay School - Te Kura o Whetūkairangi

Our aim is that every child at this school will flourish. 

We provide an approach to learning which develops and balances both academic and social/ emotional skills and competencies. Our Positive Education/ Wellbeing programme provides not only a strong foundation for our highly regarded local curriculum but runs strongly through all aspects of our day.

We see it as our responsibility to shine the light on children’s talents, to broaden their interests, encourage passions and develop our children’s more personal qualities, to be enriched. For us to do this, we prioritise getting to  know our children very well and work closely with our committed parent community/ whānau. 

We expect our Year 6 leavers to leave us as curious, connected thinkers with a love of learning that will serve them well for the future.  Happy, connected children learn. Happy, connected staff and parents support this.

We look forward to you belonging  to our vibrant school community.
