Year 7 & 8

“Our Future is Learning Together as One” “Kotahitanga i te Mātauranga”

YEAR 7/8

Titahi Bay North School is a great place to learn and be part of. We have a lot of exciting things and activities to offer year 7/8 students. An important aspect of the senior primary education that we offer is that of leadership and role modelling for our younger students. We have a philosophy of “tuakana-teina” here and our year 7/8 students play a vital role in fostering this value. Having continuity in education is very important and by having year 7/8 students at our school this is provided right up until the transition to secondary school.
