Welcome to Tamariki School

Tamariki School is a 'special character' school for years 1 - 8. It was founded in 1966 by a group of parents, teachers and people interested in making the school fit the child, rather than forcing the child fit the school.

There is a strong emphasis on developing a child's emotional strength at Tamariki, and a belief that no learning can come without it. There is also a strong emphasis on children learning through play. This results in emotionally intelligent and self-confident children with a curiosity for learning.

Tamariki boasts a small student:teacher ratio, that allows each teacher time to really know each child well, and to cater to each child's personality and specific learning needs.

The Tamariki school community is a close one. Each year starts with a school camp, where pupils and their families have an opportunity to connect with each other, to build connection.

It is this connection between pupils, teachers and parents, along with the philosophy of teaching at Tamariki, that gives Tamariki it's special character.
