Welcome to the East Tāmaki School website.

Our school motto is Kia Kotahi Tātou. This is our overarching focus for all our mahi at East Tāmaki School. We work together – we work as one with our ākonga, whānau and staff. We are the East Tāmaki School whānau. We have high standards and an orderly and supportive learning environment.

We have four pou which support these partnerships.

The school vision is our first pou.

Inspire Learners – Strengthen Mana – Influence the Future

Whakaohooho ngā ākonga- Whakamana- Whakaaweawetia ā mua.

The second pou is our school values.

Manaakitanga, piripono, whanaungatanga and kaitiakitanga.

The third pou is our whakatauki.

Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōnā te ngahere.
Ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga, nōnā te ao.
The bird that partakes in the miro berry, owns the forest.
The bird that partakes in education, owns the world.

The fourth pou is our broad and inclusive curriculum.

This curriculum gives students a wide variety of learning opportunities. These include the Garden to Table programme, a specialist music programme, a specialist science programme, being a Green-Gold Enviroschool, a purpose built bike track and bikes and two school roopu – Tōtara and Pōhutukawa.

We are an amazing team at East Tāmaki School. We have a fabulous staff and a very big team of dedicated volunteers to support the learning and hauora of our whānau.

As an inclusive school, we warmly welcome you to our school.
