Takapuna Primary welcomes International Students. We value the contribution students from many different nations bring to our school community.
Takapuna Primary School has a Director of International Students: Devika Tagg, the Principal, who provides assistance and support in cultural aspects and deals with any difficulties or questions that may arise while pupils are attending our school.
All of our international students are placed in a class of their year level, and are expected to participate as fully as possible in all areas of the curriculum, with consideration given to their level of English. Where required, pupils are withdrawn on a regular basis during the week, for intensive small group English tutoring, until they are able to work independently within the classroom. The ESOL teacher, Natasha Giles, is responsible for this and liaises closely with the classroom teacher to ensure that the pupil is settled, progressing with English and the school curriculum, to give support and assistance as required.
