Kia ora. Nau mai, haere mai, and welcome to Te Atatū Intermediate School.

Our commitment to our students and their families extends to more than an academic promise or programme, although we firmly believe that these are vital. The staff at Te Atatū Intermediate School believe that the development of positive character values and attributes, along with resilience and perseverance in their everyday life are vitally important.

So once again, welcome to our school!

Ngā mihi nui.

Lloyd Evans, Principal
