My name is Tania Morrison and I have the privilege of being the principal of Tainui Full Primary School. I work alongside an outstanding staff who work hard to facilitate quality teaching and learning. We are a school that is forward thinking and will implement best practices that bring out the best in each individual. Part of this learning approach is around developing our student’s cultural identity, standing strong in who they are is paramount. Knowing who the students are and who surrounds them in their daily life is critical to a student being happy and successful.


We have high expectations of ourselves and of our students. We don’t always get things right but we invite your voice; and we will work tirelessly to get it right for the benefit of your child’s education.


Of great importance to us at Tainui is the empowerment of students to take responsibility for their own learning, We believe that learning-focused partnerships inclusive of students, teachers and parents/whānau better enable learning success. We want our students to know what they are learning, the purpose for their learning, how to set and monitor goals and how to identify and respond to their next learning steps through a range of curriculum opportunities.


We look forward to you joining our school where you will become an important part of our learning whānau. We welcome and value the support and participation of parents/whānau at school activities, sports and events. We give you our commitment that we will do our very best to support all students.


No reira, tēnā tatou katoa
