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 new 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.  2023 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, which includes a set of Cornerstone Values that shape a young person’s character. Quality teaching is the core of our business and aspires 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 new website, and I look forward to meeting you soon!
