Welcome to Waimate Centennial School
A safe, caring and supportive learning environment in which all children will learn.
Waimate Centennial School is a state, contributing school (Decile 4) offering co-educational schooling to pupils from New Entrant to Year 6.
The school was first opened in 1955 as a full primary and was later decapitated at the beginning of 1982. Most Year 7 and 8 pupils now attend Waimate High School. We primarily serve the north and west area of the urban town of Waimate. There are also several rural children attending our school.
The school stands on 2.5 hectares of land in the north west part of Waimate. The school has an open outlook with a very large grassed area as well as adequate paved spaces. The grounds are attractive and very well maintained. A swimming pool is also part of the school’s environment and has the facility to be heated. There is also an extensive adventure playground and a shade area
