Te Kauwhata Primary School

We are a contributing school in the village of Te Kauwhata and pride ourselves on our place within the community and the sense of 'whanau' and 'belonging' that we strongly believe in and demonstrate.

During 2011 our school charter was revised and as a result of this process our new vision and values were developed and continue to be 'grown' by staff, students and our valued community.

During 2013 we opened our brand new garden area the 'Kids Patch' as well as launching our very own radio station - 'Listen Up' 107.2fm. In 2014 we were awarded our EnviroSchool's Silver award. 

At the end of 2015 we were very proud to have constructed our Waharoa. The Waharoa was designed and carved by local Whanau and community and represents and embraces all that our school stands for.

TKP is a progressive school, embracing e-Learning with a range of modern devices as integral tools for supporting and enhancing quality teaching and learning in this 21st Century.

As a staff we are a 'team' of learners who, like our students, learn from each other and welcome all opportunities to continue to grow our roles and competencies in these 'exponential' times.
Te Kauwhata Primary School is a great place to be!
Thank you, we welcome visits to our school.
