Our school is also known as Apii Vaitau with the word ‘Apii’ meaning ‘School’ in Cook Islands Maori.
Vaitau School is a Cook Islands Ministry of Education funded primary school located on the Pa Enua (outer) island of Aitutaki.
It is a small school situated on the south east side of the island. It roughly sits half way between the two villages of Vaipae (VAI) and Tautu (TAU). The first three letters from each village formulate our school name ‘VAITAU’.
Vaitau School offers free education for children aged 3 – 11 years. The Early Childhood Education (ECE) centre caters for children aged 3 - 4 years. The children then progress into Primary School with Year 1 – 6 classes.
