Strategic Plan

Empowering our children to flourish in an ever changing world
is our new future focused vision. Tawhai School will provide the knowledge, skills, learning opportunities and values to enable all children to experience success across the curriculum.

Our school perceives learning to be a co-operative partnership between students, parents and staff. In order to attain excellence, it is important that all three work towards the obtaining of all curriculum objectives in terms of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. These are important skills in the development of independence and the acceptance by children of responsibility for their own learning and later for adult life.
