Weedons School opened in 1871. The first school building was well-designed but poorly constructed and a second wooden school was built on the present site to replace it.

In 1966 this was replaced with a tow classroom brick building at a cost of $18,850. This building remains today.

A third classroom was added in 1976.

Due to rapid roll growth, three classrooms, a library, and a multi-purpose room have been added since 1996. This multi-purpose room, named Te Wharenui (Big Meeting House) is used for PE, dance & drama, whanauhui ( assemblies and meetings), and art activities.

This building can be hired out for community groups or family

events of children who attend the school.

Some smaller teaching spaces and a music room have been the most recent additions.

The school has two adventure playgrounds, a large back field, a swimming pool, two court areas, one with a kicking wall, a musical playground and a sandpit.

Our grounds contain a variety of large trees, these along with sunshades provide protection during the summer months.

Our environmental sustainability initiatives have included:

  • A tunnel house built from plastic bottles

  • Fruit and berry trees ( funded by local businesses )

  • Raised vegetable gardens

  • Worm farms

  • Composting

Our future environmental sustainability plans include further native plantings and the installation of Solar panels.
