Kia ora!

Ki ngā tāngata katoa o tō tātou kura whānau me te rohe hoki, tēnā koutou. Ki a tātou ākonga hou me o koutou whānau, nau mai, haere mai. Haere mai ki te whānau o te kura tuarua o Taupo-nui-a-Tia. 

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all members of the Taupo-nui-a-Tia College community; students, staff, whānau, alumni, and other contributors.

Welcome to our website! 

Taupo-nui-a-Tia College really is a special place.  It's a privilege to lead our amazing kura.  We have a super star team of teachers and support staff all here to inspire our rangatahi to be all they can be.  2024 hopefully will bring a sense of normality back to the way we can do things, and we are all looking forward to having all our events back up and running.  

Teaching and learning is based around our learner profile, and is supported by our three values (Whakapono, Wero, and Manaakitanga) which shape the character of our rangatahi. Quality teaching and learning is our core business, and we aspire to be culturally responsive to the needs of our students and environment. 

Our NCEA results compare well with national statistics and we know our students can achieve just as well here as any other school in the country.  

In a world which is rapidly changing, our aim is to equip students with the necessary skills so they are in charge of what happens next when they leave school. Part of this equipping is encouraging achievement in the classroom and beyond. With many sporting, cultural and service opportunities, success is recognised and celebrated in many ways. 

Enjoy having a look around our website, and I look forward to meeting you soon!
