Each year an annual walkathon is held to raise money for Tawhai School. Students, teachers and parents do several circuits around Glen Road, Maru Street and Hoereka Street.

Transport Assistance

We appreciate, and often rely on, parental assistance with transport to many school activities. It is school policy that all children must be seat belted in cars; drivers must be licensed, and cars should have a current warrant of fitness and be registered.
