Who are we? We are Tainui!
Tainui Full Primary caters for Year 1-8 in the southwest area of Tokoroa. We are a family orientated school. It’s important to us that we provide an environment that is not only attractive but also safe for all our learners.
Tainui Full Primary School is developing strong home-school partnerships where our parents and whanau feel empowered and involved in their child’s education.
We have a set of core expectations, which is known as the Tainui Way:
Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, and Excellence.
These are embedded in everything we do. We live and breathe the Tainui Way.
Regardless of ability, gender, race and personal circumstances we believe in setting up our children for success and that means providing the best opportunities we can so every child can reach their full potential.
We provide a balanced and engaging curriculum for our learners.
A curriculum that caters for individual needs.

In Year 8 there is an opportunity to become a School Ambassador of Tainui Full Primary School. Each year a number of Year 8 children will be appointed as School Ambassador. These children are role models, the face of the school and ultimate leaders of our school. They will have a range of responsibilities around the school. These children have input in to how the school is going, any concerns they have, any suggestions about how to improve the running of our school. They will be presented with a School Ambassador badge. Any Year 8 child can become an Ambassador; they have to consistently meet the criteria (attached).
Our Tainui Talents happens every Friday we provide a superior programme which includes a range of The Arts.
Why study the arts?Arts education explores, challenges, affirms, and celebrates unique artistic expressions of self, community, and culture.
Learning in, through, and about the arts stimulates creative action and response by engaging and connecting thinking, imagination, senses, and feelings. By participating in the arts, students’ personal well-being is enhanced.
