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,

Just a reminder of our 'Learning Celebration' this Wednesday at 2:00pm. We hope to see you there!


Also, we have been asked to help with the ANZAC service here in Tarras. Could you please email me if you will be attending and then I can organise the right children to be involved?

Term Dates
10 Mar 2024

Kia ora,
You're probably all onto it, but it would appear we missed the 'Otago Anniversary Day' as a day where school is closed. I have updated the '2024 Term dates' and School Calendar with the change but Monday the 25th of March, school is closed.

Apologies for the error - I must still be thinking 'Southland Anniversary'.
