From the Principal

Welcome to Tawa School. Mihi nui kia koutou. The school opened in 1855 (so we are 160 years old this year) and has a strong history of success and being a focal point of the Tawa community. We cater for children from Years 1 – 8 and pride ourselves on providing a broad, rich curriculum, family atmosphere and a welcoming, caring environment. Our motto is to “Spark a passion for what could be” – we aim to build enthusiasm for learning in our students each day and through strong teaching to bring the best out in each student, to prepare them for a fulfilling, successful life. 

We welcome enrolments at all levels of the school and would value the opportunity to share our philosophy with you and answer any questions you may have. You are welcome to contact the school and make an appointment to meet the Principal.

  • Stationery 2016
    Stationery packs will be available for purchase at the school office between 8am-3pm. Eftpos will be available.

    Note – we buy stationery in bulk to buy the best quality stationery for the most reasonable price available and we then pass the discounts on
    to the parents (i.e. we do not make profit from stationery). All stationery costs below do include a $15 ‘Administration fee’ which covers items used by each student which are not given directly to the student e.g. their learning portfolio and the costs of photocopying for them, particularly
    colour copying for their portfolios. We appreciate this being paid at the time of purchasing the stationery.

    Stationery costs for 2016 will be:
    New Entrant pack - $60, Yr 1’s – 60; Yr 2’s - $59;
    Years 3&4 - $42; Years 5&6 - $42; Years 7&8 - $47
    We welcome payment by direct credit:
