Principals Message

Welcome to our school website.

Gate Pa is an inner city Tauranga Primary School with a roll of approximately 350 pupils. Our school community is made of a cross section of cultures that very much reflects wider New Zealand. The staff of 40 are very dedicated, caring, and provide quality class programmes. Many support staff are available to run additional intervention programmes to assist children with their learning.

WE CARE is our school motto and very much underpins everything we do at Gate Pa. We pride ourselves on our unique spirit and the culture of sharing and caring. Please free to call in or make an appointment so I can show you around our school facilities.
