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.

Morning everyone

Last night the Board decided to support the Ministry of Health and Education in their recommendation for schools to require staff and students from year4 to wear masks when inside for the first 4 weeks of this term.

This does not include eating, singing or inside PE.

We do have some masks available at school.

Thank you for your support.
