Children at Tawhai School have opportunities to join touch rugby, basketball, netball, floorball and flipperball teams.
These opportunities rely heavily on parents/caregivers stepping up to manage and coach teams.
Tawhai School enters several teams each year in the tournament either at year 1&2; year 3&4 or year 5&6 level. All teams play at Fraser Park during terms 1 and 4.

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.
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.
