Otago Athletics Champs have been postponed to Thursday 19th November.

East Taieri School is situated in a semi rural area on the outskirts of Mosgiel, Dunedin. The school is set among park like surroundings, creating a superb working and learning environment. We are a decile 9 contributing primary school, with a roll of approximately 300 students. A strength of the school is its ‘family atmosphere’ and community involvement. There is a strong tradition of high expectations and values, which are incorporated into the school culture. Syndicate and school wide activities are consciously planned to ensure that this is maintained. We are very fortunate to have children who are receptive to learning because their parents value education and fully support the staff. We believe in providing for enrichment needs primarily in the classroom, but in addition we run withdrawal extension groups focusing on different curriculum areas. Programmes are put in place for students identified as requiring extra support in certain areas. The children are well cared for and they, along with their families and a wonderfully hard working and committed staff, all contribute to our happy and positive school environment. Our staff are dedicated to maintaining and enhancing our family environment.

Some children are wearing our sports uniform instead of the school uniform. A reminder that the sports uniform is just for sports i.e. touch or school run sports events.

The school provides supervision for children who NEED to be at school before 8.30am.
Parents who require this service have notified the office or the child's teacher, giving reasons for the early arrival of their children. Recently there have been some senior students arriving without prior notification from parents.
If your child requires supervision at school before 8.30am please notify the office or your child's teacher.
Teachers value highly the time before school for planning and preparing resources for the day.

At the end of this year we will sadly say goodbye to some of our very loyal Road Patrol parents. For 2016 we will need new volunteers to patrol the Gladstone Road crossing. This would only be for 15 minutes in the morning 8.30pm – 8.45pm and 15 minutes in the afternoon 3pm – 3.15pm. We rely on volunteers to help get our children safely across this road.
