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.

Dear whānau of Year 6 students,

Could all In zone enrolments (those living within the Te Atatū Peninsula area as designated from motorway north) be at the school office by August 31 2021. This enables us to prepare our staffing for the 2022 school year.

All out of zone (outside of Te Atatū Peninsula)  enrolments must be received by the deadline date of Wednesday 1 September 2021 by 3pm.

Should out of zone numbers exceed places available, a ballot will be drawn on Wednesday 8 September.

Please click here for more details. Enrolment information can be also found under the Enrolment tab.

Should you wish for more details,  contact the school office on or phone   09 834 5371.

Our annual school ‘Open Night’ is on Tuesday 3rd August from 6.30 – 8pm starting in the school hall. The school will then be ‘live’ so you can see our school in action.
