Community Connections

“It takes a village to raise a child”  Tikorangi School students will be immersed and build on strong connections to both our local and wider community. We strive for every opportunity to connect our students to opportunities and experiences where  they can build on their learning, share and demonstrate our values of respect, responsibility, resilience and rangimarie whilst making a difference to their own lives, those of others and our environment.

Learning Principles

Tikorangi School is a  student-centred, family focused learning environment that empowers and inspires our students to be creative, innovative, changemakers. When our children have ideas we like to be able to say “yes, you investigate that and see if it is a possibility. 

The learning at Tikorangi School focuses on the physical, emotional, intellectual and expressive development of each individual student whilst valuing working collaboratively and demonstrating our school values.
