At Elstow Waihou School we believe our greatest purpose is to spark our student's enthusiasm for learning so that they will become lifelong learners. We believe this because as a team of talented and imaginative educators, we are lifelong learners ourselves. Our amazing staff bring to school every day a wealth of experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm to engage and challenge children in their learning.

At our school every child from Year 1-8 is valued and supported, enabling us to offer a curriculum that focuses not just on reading, writing, and maths but all curriculum areas. Our students are high achievers and we strive to create wonderful memories for them.

Our school success is built on a strong team founded on positive relationships; students, teachers, support staff, the Board of Trustees and the wider community all working together for our tamariki.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, staff, PTA and students, Welcome to the Elstow Waihou team. Please pop in to see us at your convenience for more information.
