Tawhiti School - A caring place for lifelong learning

Tena koutou, nau mai, haere mai ki te Tawhiti kura

Tawhiti School is situated on the outskirts of Hawera, South Taranaki. We have a roll of around 300 tamariki.

Tawhiti School prides itself on quality learning programmes, passionate teachers who build positive relationships, and strong outdoor education, arts, and cultural programmes. Hauora (wellbeing) and whanaungatanga (relationships) are at the heart of everything we do at Tawhiti School. We believe that "together we make a difference".


Tawhiti is currently 1 of 18 schools in the South Taranaki Kahui Ako. Our current learning priorities are Relationships-based Learning (RbL) and wellbeing. As a school we value working closely with this cluster of schools, engaging in professional development and dialogue, learning activities and sporting and cultural events.
