Early closure

Parents and caregivers are advised that teachers who are members of the PPTA will be attending a Paid Union Meeting on Friday 24th May 2024. As the majority of our teachers are PPTA members we are unable to run our normal scheduled timetable after 1pm

All students are expected to be at school for the morning and will be released from school at 1.00pm. Lunch will be provided before students leave.

School buses will be running as normal.

Please contact the school office if you have any queries or require supervision on this afternoon.

School Holidays

The staff at Tikipunga High School would like to wish our whānau and community a safe holiday! Meri Kirihimete and a Happy New Year. We cannot wait to see you all next year. 🎄

Aniwaniwa Group

This year the students have completed an art piece which they think represents the Aniwaniwa group at Tikipunga High School. This project was all student led and all participated in the making of it. It is simply a rainbow with the handprints from those who were involved in making it. The colours represent the diversity in the LGBTQ+ community and the handprints are from the students for our kura. The vision going forward would be for all rainbow young people to have a sense of safety and belonging in our kura and wider community. Whaea Kim and Whaea Jay have worked together in the school community and have made sure that students of the rainbow community are respected, are safe, and feel included at Tikipunga High School and the wider Whangarei community. We have also developed the group understanding of upholding the mana motuhake and mauri of all students within the Aniwaniwa whānau.
