Welcome to Waihi Central School's Website - Where you can see what our school is all about and what is going on each week. 


We asked our school community what they wanted to see incorporated in the design, we collected all the responses and with lots of  discussions this is the final result.  Official as of  Term 1 2023

The koru represents the child. Our tamariki are at the center of everything we do.   As the koru unfurls it shows the importance of whānau wrapping around tamariki. It shows the support our whānau give to their tamariki in their life journey and in their time here at Central.

The fronds at the top of the logo represent the kura. They show how we support, reach out, over, and around our tamariki and whānau.

Below the koru is our awa, Ohinemuri. This moves into our whenua where we stand. Behind the pump house is Pukewa; our maunga wairua.

And the pump house represents the mining and settler history of Waihi.
