Welcome to Waitaki Boys' High School
We are enriched by a
proud heritage, but forward-looking and progressive
in our task of educating boys to meet the challenges
of the new millennium. Boys come to us from all over
New Zealand, and from many countries overseas. The
historic town of Oamaru is safe and secure, and
within easy reach of inland lakes and mountains, and
the University city of Dunedin.
The environment and traditions of the school have exercised a remarkable effect upon generations of boys. We are blessed with a spectacular site, magnificent buildings and gardens, and generous resources. Indeed, in appearance and ethos Waitaki Boys' is often mistaken for a private school.
With a roll of 550, we are small enough to know each boy well, and to recognise his individual character and needs, but large enough to offer an extensive academic and vocational curriculum, and an impressive co-curricular programme.
Our students are proud to be Waitakians. You will find here a tremendous school spirit. The big 'events' of the school year such as the Cultural Competition and the Senior Prizegiving are inspirational. The enthusiasm and vitality of the boys shines through.
We are clear about our primary task. It is to identify and develop the potential of every boy. The main aim of this website is to show you how we help all students to fulfill these expectations, and thus to realize their potential, so they graduate as confident, self-motivated and well-rounded young men ready to find their place in the world.
