With the gradual growth of "private" suburban areas and the faster growth of State housing after 1950, numerous primary and a few intermediate schools emerged. One primary school in Waitangirua closed after a few decades because of changing demographics.
Porirua is well supplied with public libraries. The main one is in the same complex as the museum, which is an educational facility itself. We reputedly have the smallest branch library in the country among our network of local resources.
Secondary and tertiaryEdit
Subsequent secondary schools include:
- Bishop Viard College, just south-west of the CBD
- Aotea College, near Aotea Lagoon, the Royal New Zealand Police College, and Gear Homestead
- Whitby College
