“Learning today for tomorrow’s world.”

We are a newly rebuilt school enjoying modern 21st century facilities. Right from the astroturf  heart, to the open and spacious fields and playing facilities, there is always lots for children to do and lots for them to be involved in.

As the mission statement implies, we are very focussed on ensuring every child’s success for their ‘tomorrow’s world’. A strong grounding in literacy and numeracy is essential to their fluency in all areas of school work. We also ensure they have a strong grounding in digital literacy, where the access and use of information and ideas adds a dimension to their learning that gives them the tools for success in any aspect of future endeavour. Digital opportunities, occur for every child, every day, every week, so these tools for learning are an important aspect of our work.

We don’t just stop there though. The whole child can only be recognised if we provide opportunities for all their talents to shine. We also offer involvement in sports and physical physed activities, and utilise a sports coordinator to advance these opportunities. Out of hours music/arts classes are also offered and are well subscribed.

We are a large, popular primary school advancing all we offer to children right through to Year 8. Children from Tahatai Coast School stand out at secondary school for their drive and focus, creativity and initiative.

We work hard to ensure success for all, and invite all in our school community to be a part of this excitement.

We enjoy sharing our school with new families to the area, and others in education. If you would like to come and visit us, please feel free to contact me or the Deputy Principal Bec Power rebeccap@tahatai.school.nz to arrange a time.
