Welcome to

Turua School

Turua School is situated between Ngatea and Thames in a semi rural environment. We are a Decile 5 school with a supportive community, and parents who have high expectations for their children’s education. Our teachers believe that all students can experience success and strive to reach their potential. They develop positive and affirming relationships with students and have a strong focus on student wellbeing and sense of belonging.

The children at Turua School are encouraged to achieve high academic standards with Numeracy and Literacy being a daily focus. A wide variety of opportunities are offered across all curriculum areas from the Arts, with extension classes provided and productions through to Physical Education and Sports, including Outdoor Education and attending a range of sporting events.

Students are encouraged to explore leadership opportunities and given a voice in school-wide protocols and decision-making. Innovative and effective teaching practices are encouraged with the provision of quality professional development opportunities for staff being a high priority of the Board.
