Principal's Welcome


Kia ora kautou,

Welcome to our College.  We look forward to developing a strong partnership with you in the education of your children.

At Tararua College we believe in an holistic approach to teaching our students.  Yes academic focus is important, but so too are the cultural and sporting areas that provide engagement for our students.

Our goal is to support every child to ensure that they reach their own level or personal excellence, whether academically,  in sport or in the cultural arena.  Our supportive staff develop strong learning focused relationships with all our students.

The College is developing Collaborative Projects that drive connections for students between traditional subject areas.  Flexible learning approaches and curriculum personalisation are the core focus for the College as we move forwards.

Our vision is to maintain and develop a College that is at the heard of the community, supporting our students and their whanau to be the best that they can be.  The College is a family friendly environment that welcomes difference and enhances personal and social skills.

We are proud of our school and look forward to continuing to build strong links with our community, ensuring that those we work with are passionate and proud of what we offer and stand for.

Our school is not about buildings, classrooms and spaces, although we do have excellent facilities.  We are about relationships and collaboration.  Our greatest asset is our student body and the wealth of diversity, ideas, enthusiasm and creativity that they bring to this place of learning.

We look forward to welcoming your child to our College and working together to develop their future.
