Otakaro – a place of play; a spring of water, Wai-iti – a tributary waterway, Putahi – a confluence where two rivers come together, Wairere – a waterfall Also found within the design are representations of the Wairakei values of Aroha, Respect and Empathy, as well as local, native trees which the school whanau groups are named after.
