Mission Statement

In a world of opportunity, we aim for all of our children to grow as confident, informed, reflective individuals who will embrace diversity and sustainability in order to fulfil their potential as members of society, both locally and globally.

Guiding Philosophy

The teachers at Tirimoana are committed to a child centred learning approach providing a balanced programme to meet children's social, academic, sporting and cultural needs. 

In our school we regard everyone as an individual, where each child is unique. We aim to understand each child’s difference by helping every child to develop their personal strengths and talents. Our school motto “Discover Your Talents” reflects this.

PB4L Vision

We at Tirimoana school have implemented PB4L in order to develop school wide consistency in our approach to managing and promoting positive behaviour. This framework will support all of our learners, our teachers and our community to discover their talents.

Our C.A.R.E. acronym stands for

Compassion ~ Act Responsibly ~ Respect ~ Effort

We believe that every child has the right to learn; every teacher the right to teach. Every person has the right to be safe and to be respected.
