Although one of the country's most remote schools, Waitaria Bay School enjoys the speed of a broadband internet link through NetSolutionz. The classrooms are well-equipped with standard computers and laptops for the children's use. The computers are networked through a server system set up through the Ministry of Education.
Outside there is a sand pit, adventure playground, play area and hard surface tennis court as well as an extensive grass playing field and a pool.
The School Library is housed in the original old schoolroom (circa 1897) which has been thoroughly modernised. School shares the space with the Waitaria Bay Community Library which is available for use free by all local residents. Keys are available out of school hours. Contact library committee members or the chairperson Lois Mahoney on 573 4303.
The school also makes regular use of the nearby Waitaria Bay Settlers Hall. This is where school assemblies take place.
