Involve me and I learn
Te ako o te Tui a Tamaoho
Our school is a Year 1-6 contributing school. Stage one will accommodate 350 learners, while stage two, 550. Stage two will be implemented when required and may not be built for a number of years. This will keep the teacher to learner ratios low.
Tamaoho School also includes satellite teaching spaces for Parkside Special School and a Sensory Resource Centre for Blind and Low Vision Education Network New Zealand (BLENNZ) with a teaching space.
We are very lucky to have one of the country’s newest schools, and it took a team of people a lot of effort to get us here. In fact, it took about two years and approximately 85,247 work hours to build our school! We had a total of 597 workers/visitors on-site over that time, and around 980 cubic metres of concrete was used during construction (that’s roughly enough concrete to fill two squash courts!). Watch our timelapse video.
Ngā mihi ki a koutou @EducationGovtNZ, contractors, our BOT and the school community. We love our new school!
