Enviroschool is about empowering students and communities to create a more sustainable, healthy, and caring environment for all to enjoy. Waitakere Primary School has been on the Enviroschool journey since 2015. Thanks to our student Enviroteam, our school successfully reflected on a BRONZE Enviroschool award in 2018. You can read more about what Enviroschool is all about on http://www.enviroschools.org.nz/.

In 2019, we are aiming to reduce the waste we are sending to our landfills, have less lost property, run lunch time Enviro clubs and eventually sell our products at a school Enviro shop. The Enviroschool guiding principles continues to be integrated throughout the curriculum and we will continue our work on composting, worm farms, garden clubs, and keeping our school environment tidy. 

In 2023 we have become a Garden to Table School. Garden to Table is a charitable trust that supports Primary and Intermediate schools and Kura to take leanning outside of the classroom and in to the garden and kitchen. The aim is to teach our tamariki knowledge and skills that have a transformative and lifelong impact on their Hauora - wellbeing- and on the world around them.
