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.

Warm lunches coming up!
13 Jun 2024

We're delighted - special thanks to Joff and Ana Bakx for kindly purchasing a pie warmer for us! We're now able to have hot lunches on those chilly days! Tamariki can begin to bring in pie warmer food:

  • pies
  • quiche
  • toasties
  • mousetraps
  • spaghetti and cheese buns
  • cheese rolls etc

Anything that is either wrapped in tin foil or an oven proof packet.

We're also going to be stocking pies, quiche and pizza slices that tamariki can purchase and pop in the pie warmer. More information will come home about this, but for now, feel free to send along any food for the pie warmer!

Thanks Joff and Ana
