Connecting talents and interests with real-world opportunities
In 2017 Tairua School launched its own dedicated technology programme for our Year 7 & 8 students specifically catering to each individual's passions and skills.
Students in TAI-Tech (Tairua Academy of Innovation & Technology) receive 2 hours of expert, hands-on instruction each week in a subject of their choice, designed to link their interests with potential career and future learning pathways.
The programme includes field trips such as visits to a professional art studio and a working restaurant kitchen. Students also work on legacy projects including a new skate ramp for the school and an outdoor mural.
Current modules on offer in TAI-Tech are:
