It has been a marvellous Term One, with much learning activities everywhere. The highlights might look like bikes in school, swimming and projects, which have seen tamariki loving this learning, but it’s the reading, writing and maths that a lot of progress has been made. It’s exciting to see so many people moving ahead in these extremely important curriculum areas.

As we head toward Term Two, we will get into our swimming programme, down at the Tokoroa Pools. This programme will again include all students. Check out our FaceBook page, our website, or Hero for the latest information about swimming 2024.


We are also excited to be starting our winter sports programme, with our netballers already practising with two wonderful and energetic parents Thanks to Grassroots, our basketballers have been training all year!

Your Voice / Ideas

You will notice we have a new sign up showing our commitment to the environment. Through our EnviroSchool initiative, we have reduced rubbish around our school, and at the end of this term, we cleaned up the litter on Strathmore Drive, St Andrew’s Drive and Lauriston Street. We love our community and us doing this work will hopefully show everyone that Taramoa Strathmore has a lot of aroha for our neighbours.


I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in our kura, for all of the amazing work you do for our school and tamariki. I particularly want to thank our hard-working teachers/kaiako and support staff/ kaiawhina - you all do so much work to keep our young people safe, secure, ‘first-aided’, happy and progressing. Tremendous thanks also to our other supporters, Josephine Jacobsen (RTLB) and Candis Smiler (SWiS) and Edna Englebretsen our very own breakfast volunteer. Thanks all for the amazing work you do. Enjoy a well-deserved break.
