The school opened in 1880, but closed in 1931 when all the Katikati schools were amalgamated to the No. 2 School in Beach Road. The Waitekohe School building still exists today as a private residence on the corner of State Highway 2 and Walker Road East which is south of the Katikati settlement. In 1991 this photograph was the subject of a mural by Irene Falconer which was sited on the northern end of the Katikati shops near the Uretara Bridge.
