Tawhai School


A Message from the Board of Trustees


March 17 2019

With the tragic attacks that occurred in Christchurch on Friday, the Ministry of Education (MOE) has sent schools information on how best to support our tamariki with dealing with the trauma from these events.

Our Board of Trustees would like to assure our school community that our staff have been advised on these ways to support our tamaraki over the coming weeks.

Our main focus is on the well-being of our tamariki which includes stability and continuity with their lives at school.

If you would like to see some of the information that the MOE has sent then please click on the links below:
