From the Principal

Welcome to Tawa School. Mihi nui kia koutou. The school opened in 1855 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.
