Nga mihi nui kia koutou

A special welcome to you all

Waiopehu College is a vibrant co-educational College with around 640 students situated in the town of Levin. The College was established in 1973 and has a spacious and attractive campus with excellent facilities throughout. We pride ourselves on meeting the individual learning needs of students through the provision of quality education programmes and pathways. We have a proud record of achievement in academic, sporting and cultural areas.

Our teachers and support staff who are this College’s most valuable resource. It is the quality of the staff that is the most important factor in determining that successful learning takes place. At Waiopehu College we have professional, well-qualified staff with whom I am proud to be associated.

Central to our success are our core ‘Pehu PRIDE’ values along with a caring sense of family, enabling safe and effective learning relationships upon which growth and achievement are based.

Quality teaching and learning are our core business and all students are encouraged to aim for excellence and become the very best they can be. A high standard of engagement and personal conduct is expected. We are future focused and we want our students to be creative, collaborative, connected and curious as they mature into young adults capable of contributing positively to their communities and to wider society.
