Merivale School/ Tutarawananga - First in Learning

The area that Merivale School is located on is called Tutarawananga.  

Historically for local iwi, it was the first area in Tauranga Moana where learning took place.  

That tradition - to be first in learning - continues today.  

Here at Merivale School we are passionate about learning, we enjoy success and challenge, and we all thrive on being part of a team.

Our vision is to be the best. To do that we must expect the best -  which is one of our 4 school core values.

Our number one priority is to provide our learners with the best educational outcomes. From digital technology to learning support services, we are constantly looking to provide and improve on what we offer to our students, staff, whanau and community.  

Ultimately, we are striving to develop future leaders and role models - but at the same time we want to have fun doing it!

Merivale School are on an exciting journey.  Nau mai, haere mai.  Come join us!

 concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kia Ora Koutou,

As you are aware, we are now at Alert Level 1.....yay!

This means, for the most part,
Merivale School returns to normal operation without limits or restrictions on social gathering, visitors on school grounds and physical distancing.

We must not forget the sacrifices we have made to get here so, to that end, where needed we will still follow practices that kept us safe over the past 3 months. This will include staying home if we are sick and following safe hygiene at school.

I would like to thank our amazing staff for their dedication and fortitude over this time as well as the Board of Trustees for their guidance throughout alert levels.

A new day dawns at the Vale bringing love, light and above all, hope for our students. Thank you one and all for your whakawhanaungatanga.
