Founded in 1848, Riwaka School is the fourth oldest in New Zealand. Our School is about developing in students a lifelong love of learning.
We believe that as well as relationship skills, life skills and an understanding of what promotes health and well-being, the future will demand people who are flexible, adaptable, able to cope with rapid change, and work at assimilating new skills to solve existing or new problems.
In light of this, our core curriculum delivery consists of Literacy, Numeracy, Computer Education, Technology, Higher order thinking skills, Information and communication skills, Co-operative learning skills and Problem solving skills.
Other programme features include:
- A1 Quality standards

- Extension opportunities for gifted and talented students
- Individual learning support
- Second language learning for years 7 and 8 students
- Kapahaka opportunities
