Kia Ora, I am Natalie Cooper, Assistant Principal and Team Leader of Tararua Team.

Our team has the privilege of working with students who have been identified as needing a highly adapted learning and teaching programme.

Underpinning our practice is the belief that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating environment in which to grow and learn.

Our team at Central Normal School strives to remove barriers to learning, recognizes and responds to diversity and supports children to thrive as learners.

An important part of our process is developing collaborative relationships within our communities of practice. In order for our students to be the best they can be, we draw together knowledge from educators, specialist, parents and whanau.

He Waka Eke Noa – We’re all in this together.
