CONGRATULATIONS TO TIS TEAM 1 - HAWKE'S BAY Lit Quiz winners for 2013
Christopher, Ian, Arelia and Samelra - Good luck for Wellington June 12.
This link will take you to our school CHARTER 2013-2015 Here you can read about our goals and targets for 2013 and our planning and thinking about your school. Check out the 2012 National Standards data, another big picture view of our school based on teacher judgements bench-marked against the standards.
You will also find other information that supports our planning and goal setting.
Please keep an eye out for our newsletter which comes out every second Thursday and is also found here on the website. Check out your child's diary to find out what is happening for them at school. There is a lot of information about the school in their diary and it is well worth spending some time together having a read of this.
Our school motto "Seek to Achieve - Whaia kia tutuki" is at the heart of our endeavours as we challenge all students to be the best they can be - through academic challenge, sporting activity, cultural action and service to our school and local community. This is expanded on as you explore this website.
Taradale Intermediate is a specialist school for the emerging adolescent, the 11 - 13 year olds of this world. This fact makes our school a special place as our programes, our activities and events are geared specifically for this age group. To quote Professor James Beane "... adolescence is an absolutely critical stage of development. It is a time of increased social awareness, dramatic physical change, a deepening sense of values, growing independence, and increasingly complex cognitive capacity". This website will give you an informative insight into our world - students, parents and staff.
We welcome all visitors to our school - parents, relatives, locals and visitors to Hawke's Bay. Please feel free to contact us with any queries or requests for further information.
