A Brief Introduction . . .
Tasman Bay Christian School is situated in a beautiful rural location 11 km on the Nelson side of Motueka. We have modern facilities and plenty of room for children to learn and play both inside and outside. We currently have three classrooms (complete with teachers!), as well as Teacher Aides, a Secretary, and other support people.
We “teach Christianly,” which means that we integrate Christian beliefs, values and standards into every aspect of our school life. We use the New Zealand Curriculum to deliver a high quality education from a Biblical perspective and undertake not to compromise our Christian beliefs in the process. We strive to help students integrate the Christian faith with their wider education so they can go into the world as good ambassadors of Christ.
We provide free bus transport from the Motueka, Moutere, and Mapua areas, so your children get safely to and from school each day. In addition to the school facilities, we also have access to a large church facility next door to the school for larger “whole school” indoor activities.
Look around our site, learn a little more about us and get a feel for what we can offer you and your children. If you would like to contact us and arrange a meeting or a tour of our facility , please use the contact details below.
Why Christian Education?
Read our new pamphlet on this important question!
What if I'm not a Christian and don't belong to local church?
Not a problem! If you want your child to have a solid, values-based education we would still welcome you at our school. Spaces are limited by the Ministry of Education, but we would love to hear from you!
We have scholarships available for new students. Contact the school office for more information and to organise a visit or Download an application form here
If you are interested in investing in Christian Education, we have set up a Student Scholarship Endowment Fund to help remove any financial barriers that may prevent low income families attending the school. Download more Student Scholarship Fund information here.
