Caring, Connected Learners

The Terrace School warmly welcomes you!

Welcome to The Terrace School, Te Kura O Papataitaha, where children from Years 0 to 8 are nurtured, challenged and inspired to live our vision of Caring, Connected Learners.

Learning is at the core of all we do with learners, both big and small, encouraged to be connected to their whanau, to their place, to their peers, to who they are, and to their learning.

We value Respect and Integrity, Curiosity and Creativity, Collaboration, and Wellbeing.

We embrace Learning Through Play in the younger years and are developing students abilities to self manage, have input into their learning, and develop positive relationships as members of our community.

We are strong in our sporting programmes and value the opportunities our local environment provides in learning beyond the four walls of the classroom.

We have a specialist Technology Centre on site, catering to year 7&8 students from across the district.

Children’s learning is supported by high quality teaching, well resourced classrooms, Specialist Learning Support staff and we have learning assistants in all of our classrooms.

Our parents have high expectations of their children, and our proactive PTA supports the school with both fundraising and community events.

If you would like to learn more about our school or have an enquiry about enrolment, please browse our website and contact the school: or on (03) 4488124.

We look forward to hearing from you.
