Schools of the Waimakariri

We are hoping to build up a history of the schools in the Waimakariri District, many of which are no longer in existence.

We encourage members of the public to add their school memories - lessons, teachers, friends, even what you ate for lunch! Current pupils may like to research their school's history and add to our basic notes or perhaps they would like to document current school life through photographs, video, audio footage and stories.


If you have a photograph of any of the Waimakariri schools and would like to add it to our online collection, please contact your local public library for more information and an easy lesson in using the Kete software to contribute!
