Friday Skating is very popular

There are many children that do not own skates and yet are dying to skate. If you have any skates lying around collecting dust, would you please consider donating them to Waipipi School? We would then be able to lend these out so that these children could have a turn as well. Thank you.

Teachers' Paid Union Meeting Wednesday 23rd November

On Wednesday 23rd November, all Waiuku primary school teachers will be attending a Paid Union Meeting. Waipipi School's time slot is at 1pm.


We would appreciate you making arrangements for your child/ren to be collected from school between 12-12:30pm.


Only support staff will be present at school in the afternoon and will supervise any student that is not able to go home at the earlier time. Buses will run at normal afterschool times- not earlier.
