"Developing Independent Life-Long Learners"

Kia Ora Koutou,

Welcome to Taita Central School. I feel hugely privileged to be the principal of such an amazing school.

We believe that positive relationships and partnerships between our students, staff and our whanau/aiga help us work together to encourage, inspire and create independent life-long learners. When you arrive at Taita Central School, you will find a friendly, family orientated atmosphere.

Warm positive relationships are evident throughout the school.

We are inclusive by way of attitude and in practice. We celebrate the diversity of our community and invite you to share your knowledge and culture with us.

We want our kura to be a place where children feel safe, happy and are excited, interested and eager to learn.

Taita Central School is a place where students are actively involved in their learning and it is safe to take risks and explore as they learn.

We are a place where effort is encouraged and achievement is celebrated.

We have an environment which is well kept, well maintained and well resourced. We look forward to providing your child during their time here, with the skills, attitudes, confidence and knowledge that they require to actively participate in the world they are living in.

We look forward to building a partnership of learning with you. If you have any questions about Taita Central School, please pop in and see us in action. Alternately you can email or ring us.

Ngā mihi nui
