COVID19 - Information and Learning

Kia ora

Thank to our entire school community for another amazing year. In spite of the challenges 2020 has brought, we have managed to have a very successful year and only missed a few of our usual activities.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our students who are moving on to other schools all the very best for their future studies.

A very warm welcome to new students and whanau joining the Waltham School Community in 2021.

Wishing you all a very safe and happy Christmas and New Year.

Gordon Caddie — Principal
