Tirau Primary School - Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well

 2018 Charter

 On the 1st March every year each school must forward to the Ministry of Education their Charter for the year. The Charter is compiled by the Board of Trustees and contains all the information about Tirau Primary that make our school the unique and special place it is. It also includes our Strategic Plan which is reviewed every 3 years and looks at the particular priorities of the school community. The Board also creates an Annual Plan to ensure that specific areas are completed each year. 


There is a copy of the Charter in its entirety for you to download.



Below is a diagram outlining the skills, attitudes and values we would like our students to develop in the 6 years that the children will be at Tirau Primary School.
