Message from the Principal

Tena Koutou Katoa.  Welcome.

I am proud to introduce our wonderful school to you.  Te Puke High School is a friendly, future focussed school, which aims to provide quality learning experiences for each and every student.  Our students are placed at the heart of our school. Our highly professional dedicated staff strive to form strong positive learning partnerships with each and every student.

Education is an important asset for each student’s future in an ever-changing world.  At Te Puke High School we take learning seriously. Within a supportive environment, our students are expected to take responsibility for their learning and aim for excellence in everything they do.

When our students leave Te Puke High School, I want them to be technologically literate, able to gain new knowledge and skills with relative ease and have the competitive advantage for success in local, national and global communities.

Te Puke High School is small enough to care and large enough to compete.
