Wai-iti School house, 1945.

In July, 1859 the Board received, "A memorial from the inhabitants residing beyond the Wai-iti river requesting assistance towards building a school house." A wooden school house was built a little distance from the road up a bank, and later a new school near it. (From Stringer, Marion J. 150 years of Wakefield schooldays : 1843-1993, p. 109).
