About Us

Teaching and Learning

At Tasman Bay Christian School, we see education as more than imparting knowledge and skills - it's a partnership with whānau and community as we seek to help tamariki discover their uniqueness and purpose in life.

We seek to serve the family, the church, and the wider world by challenging young people to respond to Jesus, integrate their faith with their learning and to take the love of Jesus out into the wider world.
