About Us

Tauwhare School has been providing quality education for children in this community for more than 125 years.

The following is an outline to Parents/Caregivers details of the School’s activities and to help you and your children feel at ease with us.

To achieve our aim of providing children with an excellent education, we believe that a close liaison between home and school is essential and we welcome Parent/Caregiver participation in the life of the school.

The Community
