Message from the Principal

Nau mai, Haere mai,

Welcome to Tauriko School.

Tauriko School prides itself on being a school of choice for families who want to to be part of a school with a long history of excellence in education and a focus on the future with Teaching and Learning programmes that deliver cutting edge, high quality learning for all students.

The school's essence statement "Learning . Leading . Succeeding" provides a core focus on developing young people who:

  • Love Learning
  • Have skills that support them to be life-long learners in the 21st Century
  • Are afforded a wide range of leadership opportunities
  • Contribute positively to their communities
  • Know they can make a difference
  • Experience success in learning and develop an understanding and confidence in who they are as people

Tauriko School believes that student learning and achievement happen most successfully within a strong supportive partnership between home and school. "It takes a village to raise a child" and the school and its community are wrapped around each student to support their success.

Strong models for learning are modelled by school staff and parents/whanau. The school espouses a strong belief in its focus as a community of learners - student, staff and parents/whanau.

We all learn from each other, all of us are teachers and all of us are learners.

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi engari he toa takimano

My strength is not the strength of one, it is the strength of many

We look forward to a wonderful relationship with

your child and whanau.
