Tipu Whare is an alternative education programme based at Panama Road School. We strive to create opportunities for achievement for young people that have for whatever reason, turned away from mainstream education. We also aim to find what our young people are passionate about in order to serve them as best we can in following their dreams.
Entry Criteria: Tipu Whare is accepting young people from the ages of 13-16 that have been disengaged from their learning for at least 2 terms.
