About Tauranga Intermediate School

Principal’s Welcome

Our school was established in 1958 on a promontory overlooking the Tauranga inner harbour. The fact that we represent a cross section of New Zealand society is something we are proud of and which gives us the vitality, energy and spontaneity for which we are known.

Emerging adolescence is such an important developmental stage and the Tauranga Intermediate School Board has been careful to ensure that the design, staffing and learning programmes of the school are ‘best fit’ for these emerging adolescents.

Emerging adolescents enjoy exposure to opportunity and the opportunities available within this school are immense and reflect a 21st Century learning environment.
In this way our students are well prepared to experience success at their respective high schools in the future. Coupled with opportunity is competition and this is evident in all we do; where individuals are recognised for personal growth, while outstanding achievement is warmly affirmed.

The key to ensuring the realisation of our strategies is to employ a blend of youth and experience within our staff and to employ staff who are enthused to make a discretionary commitment to our students, not only in their personal professional learning but in academic, sporting and cultural activities outside of the normal
school day.

Tauranga Intermediate School is a large, secure, challenging emerging adolescent learning context and we warmly invite you and your child to become part of the ‘Tauranga Intermediate experience’.

Come to explore and achieve, and to enhance our reputation. Experience the fun and fulfilment resulting from this!

Mr Cameron Mitchell
