From the Principal


Kia ora rawa atu koutou


Ngā mihi matakuikui ki a koutou katoa kua hono mai ki o tātou whārangi ipurangi o Te Kura o Tawhero.



Warm greetings to you all who have come to check out our Tawhero School website. I feel very privileged and proud to welcome you to a wonderful community that have the tamariki, their learning and wellbeing at the heart of everything we do. Everyday I am excited about working with a great collective of people that are positive, caring and  inclusive of everyone. They have shown long term loyalty to the community and tamariki here at Tawhero and strive to provide the very best opportunities they can.



Your tamaiti/child will feel loved, cared for and nurtured in everything they do at our kura! The whānau at Tawhero embraces difference, uniqueness and respect for each other.


I am totally passionate about learning in a fun-loving environment where culture, wellbeing and the children’s needs are at the fore-front of everything we do.


Nau mai haere mai ki Te Kura o Tawhero.......


Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōnā te ngahere, ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga nōnā te ao!

The bird that eats from the miro tree owns the forest, the bird that eats from the tree of knowledge owns the world!


Ngā manaakitanga ki runga i a koutou katoa
