Mission Statement

 At Tarras School we strive to create a calm, safe place to be. We celebrate kanorau (diversity); accepting and respecting each other’s uniqueness, developing a sense of belonging. We create opportunities for all tamariki to learn and excel. We encourage all to show manira (curiosity) by asking questions, being excited and engaged and enjoying shared learning experiences. Our hapori (community) is active and supportive in our place; we are the hub and feel privileged to be so. We encourage whānau to be fully involved in life at Tarras. Whakauka (sustainability) guides us to ensure we are upholding and protecting our mana, kura and whenua.

Kia ora,
Special thanks to everyones fund-raising efforts, we're now able to start Stage 1 of the playground upgrade! YAY! We're really grateful to the community who have helped out with catering events, purchasing raffle tickets etc - this means we can continue to provide the very best for that Tarras children and community.

For Stage 1 of the playground upgrade, we are seeking some support. If you are able to help in any way; labour, a tractor, wheelbarrow etc, then please complete the below form and I will make contact with you all. We appreciate that you are all very busy but 'Many hands make light work'. 

Thanks again,
