Te Mata School Board
The Te Mata School Board would like to welcome you and your family to our school. As a board we love having the opportunity to represent our community by helping to lead our school into the future.
The focus of all our planning and work is ensuring that we make informed and future focussed decisions with our children, staff and community at the centre. We strive to uphold and strengthen our school in alignment with our values of Tūrangawaewae (Belonging), Kaitiakitanga (Respect) and Whakapuāwai (Personal Excellence). As a result we have a strong community and family culture and our children "Seek the Heights" with high levels of learning, while having fun in their everyday school life.
We look forward to getting to know you and your family.
