Our School

Nau mai, haere mai,


I am proud to introduce you to Waltham School-Te Kura o Tupuni.

We are a State-Funded Full Primary School (Year 1-8) and have a long and successful history educating and nurturing the young people of our area.

Our school curriculum and values are based strongly on our vision to ‘Reach for the Stars’.

The Waltham Community is vibrant, culturally diverse and reflects the broad range of New Zealand’s unique society.

We feel very fortunate that you are part of our community and look forward to working with you.

I have had the privilege of working in this great community and wonderful school over the past decade. During this time we have redeveloped our buildings, continued our strong growth and build up a team of fantastic people. We all strive every day to be part of a school where we value every individual equally and support each other to reach for the stars together.


You are always welcome to come in and have a chat or have a tour around the school.

Ngā mihi,


Gordon Caddie

Principal - Tumuaki
