Tirimoana School at Alert Level 1

I encourage parents as much as possible to continue with the 'kiss good-bye at the gate'. We recommend that you allow your child to be independent and to make their own way to class. The start of the school day is important for both children and teachers, and we know that can be a pressure on many parents who on their way to work. We do understand that parents of our youngest learners may wish to accompany their child to their classroom. If you wish to talk to your child’s teacher, please make an appointment and we ask that you register at the school office. Teachers are still required to record when they meet parents.

At pick-up time please continue to meet your child at your arranged pick up spot.

  • Trust your children to walk to and from school if possible. 
  • Park further way from school and allow your children to walk the rest of the way to school.
  • Collect your children 5-10 minutes later to avoid the rush.

Your children will be safe at school waiting for you so long as they know when you will be collecting them.

The end of the school day has been slightly adjusted

Children in Years 4-6 will be released at 2.55pm (instead of 2.50pm)

Children in Years 0-3 will be released at 3.00pm (as normal)

Staying home when sick

All children and staff are expected to stay home if they are feeling sick

Coming into the School Office

Parents are no longer required to sign in at school office. If you notice that there are a lot of people in the office area, we recommend that you wait outside until it is less congested.

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.
