Kia ora & Welcome to Tauriko School

Congratulations on taking this first step towards studying with us. We look forward to getting to know you and providing you with a positive, safe and rewarding learning experience.

Tauriko school welcomes International Students to be a part of our School Community. We value the diversity of different cultures and cherish the opportunity for cross cultural learning. As we share our world and school, we broaden our own experiences of the world.
