WATERWISE & SURF ACADEMY
Embracing the unique opportunities offered by a stunning natural environment
From the magical surroundings of Pakau Hora Hora, our school beach, to the action of the Pauanui Surf Breaks, getting in and around the water provides a strong focus for all students at Tairua School. A daily summer swim programme combined with Kayaking, Sailing and our own School Surf Academy, enables students to gain the water safety skills and confidence that is vital for young people in coastal communities. Waterwise and Surf Academy are two prime examples of what vibrant and enthusiastic parent/caregiver participation makes possible.
