Reasons to
love our school

Since 1879

Taonui School is a
positive and proactive learning environment

We are constantly exploring new initiatives in education and STRIVE to keep ourselves at the forefront of developments. We welcome current and prospective parents to call in at any stage (we do advise booking an appointment) to discuss your child’s education.

We strongly believe a positive partnership between school, parents, students and community is vital to our success. This strong partnership has been influential in the major developments and growth that have taken place over the last few years.
