We are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to you and your family to our vibrant rural school community. At Wakanui School, we pride ourselves on providing an enriching educational experience rooted in the values of community, collaboration, and excellence.

Wakanui School is nestled in the heart of Wakanui, surrounded by picturesque landscapes and a close-knit community atmosphere. We cater to students from diverse backgrounds, offering education from New Entrant to Year 8.

Our dedicated team of educators is committed to fostering a supportive learning environment where every child can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We are able to cater to the needs of our students through our smaller class sizes, which allow more individualised programs and more teacher time for our learners.

Parents of 5 year old new entrants are required to bring their child's immunisation certificate and birth certificate when they start school.
