Nau Mai Haere Mai
Here at Tainui Full Primary School we believe in setting our tamariki up for success by providing the best opportunities we can so every child can reach their full potential.
We are developing strong home-school partnerships where our parents and whānau feel empowered and involved in their child’s education. At TFPS we provide a balanced and engaging curriculum that caters to the needs of our learners and offer our ākonga opportunities to enhance their knowledge and skills that they need to keep themselves healthy and well in all aspects of their whare tapa wha. Our staff support and teach our ākonga to develop the skills to be confident and responsible communicators and citizens of Te Ao: culturally, socially and within the digital world.
We look forward to forming partnerships with you, our whānau, to ensure your child receives the best education possible in a happy and inclusive environment.
Tēnā koutou katoa
My name is Natalia King-Taylor and I am privileged to be an educator here at Tainui Full Primary since 2018. It is an honour to be part of such a big whānau within our kura and the community. Over the years at TFPS, there have been many great innovative changes to education and to our teaching ways which has been beneficial to ākonga and staff. All staff here strive to empower our learners to be the very best they can be by supporting and uplifting tamariki to ensure they reach their potential: academically, socially, emotionally and physically. ‘Poipoia te kakano, kia puawai.’ Nurture the seed and it will blossom.
I feel honoured to be sharing the lead in supporting our staff, tamariki and whānau on our school’s 2023 journey.

My name is Rosie Garnett and I have been incredibly fortunate to have taught at Tainui Full Primary School since 2004. Throughout this time I have taught all age levels from Year 2 right up to Year 8 and have held various leadership roles.
I have seven beautiful moko and am lucky enough to have three that attend our school. It really has been a privilege to see the growth and change that has happened over these years and I look forward to seeing where Tainui is heading in the future. Onwards and upwards!
