About Us

At Waipa Christian School our aim is to encourage students to become lifelong learners. Our expectation of our tamariki, is a willingness to learn to develop the skills to explore, connect and be active contributing members of their community. We would love to see them reach the full potential God has destined for them. We strive for success for all by helping students to become resilient, curious and courageous.

Our school has two Innovative Learning Studios that encourage 21st Century learning through technology and service-based learning. God is our focus and our Christian faith permeates throughout everything our students endeavour to do. Quality teaching and learning is at the heart of the matter and our achievement data can attest to this.

WCS is a nondenominational Christian school that welcomes families from all the local Christian churches in Te Awamutu, Cambridge, and Otorohanga. WCS are governed by a strong BOT with local ties to two of the town's main churches. On our BOT we have Ps Phil Strong from North End Church,  Ps Jeff Falconer from Te Awamutu Bible Chapel and Rick Fourie CEO of Creators Christian Education Trust to look after our Special Character.
