Dr Gloria Penrice, and her enthusiastic, experienced teaching staff strongly believe in encouraging curiosity and creativity as a way of engaging and motivating learners. Tamariki receive one-on-one support catering to their individual strengths and interests, ensuring they all get the maximum benefit out of their educational experiences and succeed to the best of their ability in all areas of the curriculum.
At Taieri Beach School, we believe our tamariki learn best when they are relaxed, happy, feel safe, and have warm, positive, supportive relationships with their teachers. The learning environment focuses on all tamariki feeling valued, secure, and confident they will be listened to, and celebrates their achievements. Close communication with whānau is highly valued and there is an open-door policy where parents feel welcome to visit.
We are passionate about tamariki experiencing the fun and wonder of exploring new knowledge through practical hands-on experiences and working together as a team. Student initiated projects are a valued part of our curriculum. Using their scientific knowledge about pulleys and levers, tamariki are designing a theme park for Bug City including a ferris wheel, roller coaster, swings, see-saws and a gyro-drop. They are also constructing a cable car system so bugs can easily access the summit of Bug City’s Mount Everest. Another project is a sensory butterfly garden incorporating flowers and herbs with the goal of providing a suitable habitat for endangered butterflies.
