Welcome to Te Wharau Primary School. We are a state primary school that caters for students from Year 0 to Year 6. Located in Kaiti a suburb of sunny Gisborne, we provide our students with a quality education in a safe caring environment. 

Our students are happy, energetic children who are keen to learn and enjoy school. They are supported and guided by highly effective, passionate teachers who encourage each and every child to achieve to their full potential.

Our school has an 'Open Door" Policy so you are most welcome to visit and be part of your child's learning. Whanau new our community are also most welcome to visit and see our school in action when deciding on a new school for their child/ren. 

We strongly promote positive values through our unique CHARM programme (Cooperation, Hauora, Attitude, Resilience and Manners) and believe in a well-rounded education that offers our students plenty of opportunities to be successful.
