Principal's Welcome

Nau mai, haere mai ki te Kāreti o Wairarapa. Welcome to Wairarapa College.

Wairarapa College has always and will always be a people-centred learning environment. We have a proud history of serving the Wairarapa as its largest community school. Our vision of wisdom and courage emphasises well-being, effective teaching practice and fostering strong connections with the Wairarapa community.
