A very warm welcome to our Turaki School website. Naumaui, Haeremai.
At Turaki School we pride ourselves on building and maintaining positive working relationships with our tamariki and their whanau to provide high-quality learning experiences in a caring environment. Our tamariki thrive in the settled and inclusive environment we provide. We work collaboratively with our long-standing Board of Trustees and our PTA.
Our passionate teachers encourage our tamariki to develop their potential in all areas of the curriculum. We are a collaborative teaching and learning team which is made up of Team Teina (Years 0-4) and Team Tuakana (Years 5-8). In Team Teina our tamariki are supported by learning through play which we believe is an important start to their learning journey at Turaki School. In Team Tuakana our tamariki are digital learners who plan their day around assigned Literacy and Numeracy workshops. We also have wonderful teacher aides who support teaching and learning programmes for our students during the school day.
We are a PB4L school and our values of AROHA (Achievement, Respect, Ownership, Honesty, Attitude) combine to make our ‘Turaki Way’.
We have Tumeke Brekkie, which is our breakfast club every morning for all tamariki who arrive at school before 8;30am. We also receive Fruit and milk in school which is available daily to all of our tamariki.
At Turaki School we also love sport and education outside the classroom and we participate in every local sports event available including all inter-school events, Mud Run, Ski Club, and Ripper Rugby. We have two amazingly talented Kapa Haka tutors who guide and prepare our roopu for a number of festivals including Taiopenga, Mana Ariki and Ruapehu Cultural festivals.
Our whanau focussed, student-driven education is unique as we work together to give all of our tamariki opportunities to reach their potential.
