Principal's Message

I am privileged as Principal of Te Aroha College to lead this fantastic school and believe we 

offer an education second to none. We continue as a leadership and teaching team to

be learners and innovators as we seek to provide new and varied ways to engage all our

students in learning opportunities that focus on personal and educational success. Our size

is our greatest strength as we can offer a personalised education that allows our students to

individually shine. - Heather Gorrie

A very cool theatre company "Ensemble Impact" is coming to Te Aroha College on Monday, 29th of May at 2.15 (period 3B). It is called "The Outliers" and is about teenagers and young people who struggle on the outskirts of "society". Pay $5 in cash at the door on the day or PAY IN ADVANCE by writing your FULL NAME on a piece of paper with these words "$5 for The Outliers" and posting it in an envelope or provided plastic bag into the Student Services box. Your name will then go on a list and you won't have to remember to bring your money on the day. Think about what class you will be missing and talk to your teacher about it asap! - AHA

If you need to leave at all during the day for any reason at all - your parents need to phone the student centre, or send a note to school - a text message on YOUR phone doesn't count. If your parents have not phoned the school or you don't have a note, then you cannot leave the school grounds - Student Centre needs parental permission for a student to leave school during the day. - RJO
