Greetings from Te Puke High School


This year we have welcomed 30 new students from amongst others Brazil, India, Germany, Thailand, Japan, Colombia and Austria.  Students enjoyed a comprehensive orientation programme which included a school tour, safety briefings, an overview of the New Zealand Education system, sport and cultural opportunities as well as an opportunity to meet fellow international students as well as domestic students.  Students also enjoyed a harbour tour with lunch at Matakana island as well as surf lessons.  Timetabled classes started on 10 February and all students are settled into class.  Students are enjoying the variety of the curriculum and trying new subjects.

Scholarship from the University of Waikato

We are so proud of Jiyun Byun from South Korea who has been awarded a scholarship to the sum of $10,000 from the University of Waikato.  Jiyun started her journey at Te Puke High School in 2017 with very limited English and went on to complete her NCEA Level 3 with University Entrance and Excellence endorsements.  We are so proud of Jiyun and know that she will be very successful with her future studies.  

New reporting schedule

We have commenced with a new reporting schedule.  Reports will be sent out every 2 weeks.  This is a progress report indicating how the student is progressing in their subjects as well as their attendance rates.  We hope that you will find this useful.

Technology @ Te Puke High School

At Te Puke High School we place Technology at the forefront of our learning.  Each classroom is equipped with Computers on Wheels.  Students take a laptop and login and with their unique login.  Work is done through Google Classrooms.  We are also incredibly proud of our Drone Project,  Our school owns a number of Drones which we use throughout the community.  Students love being involved with this project.  Pictured here is new student Tun, from Thailand who brought his Drone from Thailand and is involved with our Drone project.
