Greetings and a warm welcome to Tamatea High School.
Our vision at Tamatea High School is E tipu e rea, ka tipu koe hei tangata. This means 'Growing good people for a changing world'.
We all want our rangatahi and tamariki to have the opportunity to learn the skills and knowledge that enables a positive future. One of our key goals is ensuring our students have a meaningful career pathway.
We want them to learn to:
- understand who they are
- be proud of themselves
- get on with others and work in teams
- set challenging and achievable goals
- be a good person
If these goals are a good fit for your whānau, we'd love to have you join ours.
We recognise that each of our ākonga have different strengths, and learn at different speeds. Our kaiako take an active interest in understanding and supporting them to set their learning goals. We want to help our rangatahi to thrive in a changing world.
Students are coached so that they choose a pathway that best suits their strengths, interests and future plans. This includes developing their academic skills such as critical thinking, creativity, knowledge and practical skills along with resilience, cultural understanding and values that prepare them for life beyond the school gate.
Specific learning needs are also targeted by our supported learning programmes, tailored to offer extra support to ākonga who need it.
