Te Totara Primary School - Growing and Learning Together

Principal's Message

Welcome to Te Totara Primary School

Our school was founded in 2008 to cater for the fast growing Rototuna area in the north east of Hamilton.

The school began with 58 students. At the end of each year our school roll finishes with between 750-800 students.

A fundamental belief of our school is that our children are STARS, this is encapsulated in our school wide vision of " Growing and Learning Together" which has five key components:

S Smart Decisions
T Trying our best
A Always Learning
R Respectful
S Self Managing

The STARS are important to us and help us in our daily lives as we continually look to improve.

We welcome visitors and if you would like to see the school in action we have tours during the school year each Tuesday 9.15-10.15.

I am proud to lead a committed and highly capable team to help our students. Also, to be a part of a school community that highly values the part our school can play in supporting our children and families.
