Welcome to


Educating children for their futures, today

Welcome to Te Aroha Primary School where children from Year 1 to 8 are challenged to be the best that they can be in an inclusive learning environment.

Situated in the heart of Te Aroha and nestled under the mountain on a 4.6 hectare campus, our children have a sense of belonging, pride and are valued in their cultural heritage.

We always encourage our children “To Accept The Challenge” which is our school motto. This is the challenge to learn, to explore, to have a go at new opportunities and to have fun.

We invite you to join us on this journey.

Kia Ora Parents, 

FutureFerns Open Day is this Saturday! We hope your child is excited for a fun filled morning of Netball. 

If you haven’t already please remember to register your children using the following link


For our season to be a success we need the help of as many parents as possible! You don’t need any experience or even know the rules of netball to be a part. 

On Saturday there will be two Parent workshops for you to get some coaching of your own on how the future ferns program is run.  

Please follow the link to register for the workshops

All parents who attend the workshop will be in draw to win Prizes; 1 Month Fitzone Membership and Barkers Goodie Box.

Netball notice

Wed Mar 22 09:34am

Kia Ora Parents and Caregivers,

Netball season is fast approaching and we have made a few exciting changes to Junior Netball at Te Aroha Netball. 

The first change is Netball will be held on a Wednesday afternoon rather than Saturday mornings. This has been a huge barrier for some Parents trying to juggle multiple children or attending multiple sports. We are very excited to welcome new faces to our sport! 

The second is we want to provide a bit more support to our parents, volunteers and ultimately our kids playing! Due to our centre being run solely by full time working volunteers it is important that for the success of our programme we need help from as many parents, big brothers or sisters, grandparents and caregivers! We also acknowledge how scary it can be if you have never done it before! 
That is where our volunteer support will come into effect; if you would like to be a part of the volunteer group please get in contact with Aimee (3centrescdo@gmail.com) and register for the volunteer support workshops and weekly email list.

Finally our Open Day will combine the two! Parents and Caregivers will get to have some support on how to support in the sessions and the children get to give netball a go in our skill sessions!

See you next week.


Attendance awards

Mon Mar 13 12:34pm

Kia ora parents and whānau,

Just a quick update on attendance rewards. Initially we had said that only students with 100% attendance would be acknowledged in our 3-weekly acknowledgments. However, the Ministry of Education’s target for attendance is children attending at least 90% of the time (9 out of every 10 days). So we have gone for that too, and I am pleased to report that in the previous 3 week period 114 students have met that target, which is approximately 63% of our students. Our aim is to continue growing this number as the year progresses.

Due to a shortage of ice blocks (I didn’t order enough…oops) we will be acknowledging these students ōpōpō / tomorrow.

Have a great day everyone,

Family Fun Night postponed

Tue Feb 14 09:57am

Kia ora parents and whānau, 

Due to the recent (and ongoing ) weather situation we feel it is wise to postpone the planned Family Fun Night tomorrow (Wednesday) to a later date.

The date is TBC as I am aware that sports and other extra curricular activities are getting underway shortly.

We will work to find a date that works for most and advise once we have made a firm decision.

Thank you and see you all āpōpō/ tomorrow



School to remain closed on Tuesday 14th, reopening Wednesday 15th

Mon Feb 13 02:38pm

Kia ora parents and whānau,

I have just come off a zoom call with the surrounding principals and while everyone would prefer to be open and providing the core business of educating our students it is out of an abundance of caution and heeding the weather warnings from officials that we have collectively decided to stay closed tomorrow and reopen on Wednesday. 

Our decision was also based heavily around the wellbeing of the students and staff, it may not be safe or practical for many families to be travelling tomorrow and we wanted to make the call early so that you have some certainty during this very uncertain time.

I have been at school this morning and can assure the children that apart from some leaves and small branches on the ground, everything is as they left it Friday and we are very much looking forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday.

Take care of yourselves. Stay safe, Stay dry and remember that Family and friends are your biggest support in times of trouble and happiness.

Kia kaha TAPS whānau, look out for each other and we will see you Wednesday.

Please take the two minutes to answer these quick 4 questions.


Many thanks



School attendance

Fri Feb 10 12:38pm

Kia ora parents and whānau,

As you will have read in my newsletter to you earlier in the week, attendance is a big issue right across                Aotearoa/New Zealand. Here at TAPS we have decided to try an incentive scheme for Term 1 and see what (if any) effect it has on attendance.

Every 3 weeks I will look at our attendance data and the children with 100% attendance for the previous 3 weeks will get a free ice block and a certificate. I want to make it clear that it is only for students with 100% attendance. I understand that there are plenty of justifiable reasons for children to be away but sifting through that information would be quite a task. The good thing, I think, is it resets every 3 weeks so it is an achievable reward for EVERY child at TAPS during Term 1.

I understand that this may not be for everyone and we will be constantly looking for other innovative ways to encourage attendance, however we MUST do something as educating our young people is so very important and we want the absolute best for our TAPS learners.

Thank you everyone.

Justin and the team

Security cameras

Fri Feb 10 09:17am

Kia ora parents and whānau,

I just wanted to let you all know that our school now has 11 security cameras in operation 24/7. We are in the process of getting signage placed around the school alerting people to this fact but wanted to give you all the news. We can all rest assured that our school is safe and secure and if there are any incidents we can easily use the footage to resolve any situations that may arise. Also please note that only a small number of people have access to the camera footage for privacy reasons.

Thank you and have an awesome day.

Te Aroha Primary School

Kia Tu Kia Toa Kia Mau

Accept the Challenge

The Te Aroha Primary School Board of Trustees are reviewing the religious instruction classes currently taking place at TAPS on Friday mornings.  

At TAPS we recognise and celebrate the diversity of our students and want to ensure we remain inclusive of all students and their beliefs. We would appreciate your feedback so we can assess whether the religious instruction classes continue to represent our school community and are inclusive. 

TAPS offers a religious instruction programme called Launchpad (formerly known as Bibles in Schools). The classes run for 30 minutes every Friday morning from 9am. Launchpad is taught by volunteers and encourages and supports belief in Christianity. It does not endorse any other faith.  

The programme teaches Christian values presented through stories from the Bible. The programme is not part of the NZ curriculum. 

Attendance is voluntary and may only occur with written consent from a parent or guardian. 

If, following community consultation, the classes continue during normal class hours, the school will provide an equally appealing alternative to students whose parents do not consent.  

Please take the time to review TAPS current policy on religious instruction: 

TAPS School docs site

Username: tearohaprimary

Password: school

Then search “Religious instruction” to be taken to the appropriate policy

Following community feedback, the Board of Trustees will decide whether to continue the religious instruction classes on Friday mornings at 9am, or move them to lunchtime, or before school for children who wish to attend. 

Please complete this short questionnaire so that we can be sure we have captured the thoughts and feelings of our school community.


Thank you for your support, we appreciate you taking the time to complete this questionnaire.

Fri Feb 03 10:23am

Kia ora parents and whānau,

Next week we are taking a hardline on hats…NO HAT, NO PLAY.

There have been a number of children without hats this week and we have been a little lenient as it’s the first week and the weather has been average. 

Thankfully the forecast is much improved next week, so we will be enforcing the hat rule from Tuesday. 

In addition Lucy won’t be handing out spares from the office, the children can all be responsible for having a hat to wear or they will be in the shade beside the library. 

Please help set your child up for success by ensuring over the long weekend that they have a hat ready for Tuesday. 

We thank you for your support and understanding.
