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.
