Waiheke High School, Auckland

Waiheke High School offers an exciting opportunity for students to be part of an island community. Just 35 minutes by ferry from the centre of Auckland City, Waiheke Island is a very special part of New Zealand.

Waiheke High School provides a quality educational experience. There are some unique subject opportunities because of the School’s unique location. The Sea Sports Academy and Viticulture courses are popular with international students. Waiheke High School has a strong sense of community and there are several events in which the whole school participates. 

In summer there is ‘Beach Sports’ day where all the students go to the beach and students participate in a range of fun activities, from swimming and kayaking races to sand castle building competitions. Matariki is another significant event for the School. Matariki, which celebrates the Maori New Year, is held in June.

Island life

Waiheke Island is a special and beautiful place to live. It has golden sandy beaches with stunning scenery and blue clean water. Dolphins, and occasionally whales, are spotted in the waters around Waiheke. The most popular leisure activities revolve around the sea, for example: swimming, kayaking, fishing, snorkelling and sailing.

Regular fast ferries run every hour between Waiheke Island and Auckland City. This means that students can live in a beautiful environment in a small friendly community, yet still have access to New Zealand’s biggest city.

Sandy beaches that are popular for swimming and water sports are a feature of Waiheke Island. There are also shops, cafes, and many vineyards. Waiheke Island is a famous tourist destination which people from around the world come to enjoy. The island is very safe and prides itself on being a caring community. The population is about 8000.
