Welcome to Tasman Bay Christian School!

Tasman Bay Christian School is a state-integrated school for students who are beginning their school learning journey through to Year 8. Our school is located in a beautiful rural setting with lots of room to learn and play. 

Romans 12:22 says: "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

​Quality Christian education develops each child’s mind, captivates their heart and equips their hands to serve and respond to God’s calling over each of their lives. It encourages curious and courageous learners to explore God’s world and live out the hope of Christ.

At the heart of Tasman Bay Christian School, there is a team of Jesus-centered and student-oriented educators whose greatest desire is that each of their students would be equipped for their future and become Jesus-centered themselves. We believe deeply in ensuring that this continues, and our school values of Taking Action, Being Servant-Hearted, Chasing Wisdom and Showing Character are a central pivot for us to launch our development of young people. 

With a vastly new teaching team, along with new leadership, we have taken a fresh direction in terms of how we teach and how students learn. 

We also provide a free bus service from Richmond through to Riwaka.

We invite you to come and see what we are all about - you're most welcome to visit and see how Tasman Bay Christian School is the best place for your tamariki. Contact us to make an appointment and we can start the conversation.

Mā te Atua koutou e manaaki,
