Totara College

Totara College’s vision is to meet the educational needs of children from New Entrant to      Year 13, as well as Adult Students. By working with parents, the college is able to identify the specific needs and requirements of each student and to prescribe a balanced, comprehensive, educational programme that will maximise the student's learning potential and equip them for success.

The college believes we are living in a time where parents are becoming increasingly concerned about the education of their children. At Totara College, education is the means by which we equip our children with the skills, knowledge and attitudes they need to live successful lives, both now and in the future.  It also means that they can fulfil God's plan and purpose for their lives.

School vision:

Reaching our God given potential
