Tamariki Society at a Glance
Tamariki School Incorporated is a Society under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908.
The Tamariki School was formed in 1966 by a group of parents and teachers who owned and operated the school. This group became the Tamariki Society and entered into an integration agreement with the Ministry of Education in 1990, to operate a state integrated primary school with a Special Character. Current regulations for state integrated schools are found in Schedule 6 of the Education and Training Act 2020.
The Tamariki Society has a responsibility to maintain and preserve the Special Character, and does this through a variety of support activities and events. It also owns the buildings and is responsible for capital maintenance and development of the school property. The school itself (Tamariki School) is a different entity and is governed by a school board. The Board and staff are responsible for the day-to-day operation of the school and general property maintenance on the site owned by Tamariki School Incorporated.
