Tēnā koutou e ngā mātua. He mihi mahana tēnei ki a koutou katoa mai i te Kura Tuarua o Tamatea.
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 – 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 and to develop a meaningful career pathway.
We want them to learn how to: get on with others, work in teams, set challenging but achievable goals, strive to achieve these goals and most importantly, be a good person.
We recognise that each of our students have different strengths, and learn at different speeds. Our teaching staff take an active interest in understanding and supporting students in establishing their learning goals and helping them 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 students who need it.
