In 2021 we introduced waka groups to Waitākiri.
We have called our groups ‘waka’ (boat) in keeping with the name of our school meaning ‘meandering waters’. All children are placed in whānau (family) groups with other members of their family and will travel in their waka together
as they journey through Waitākiri. Our waka groups will be used for many events during the year. They are like “houses” that you might remember from your school days.
Each waka is represented with a colour.
