Holistic highlights at THS

In the upcoming year, we anticipate exciting events, beginning with the orientation of Year 9 students and our school-wide pōwhiri.
Notable highlights for 2024 include a revamped uniform in collaboration with NZ Uniforms, introducing a more contemporary design for Years 9, 12, and 13. Additionally, we proudly announce the establishment of a Goldfields School Satellite Class, fostering inclusive education in our community.
Emphasising holistic well-being, Thames High School is privileged to offer the Ka ora Ka ako, Healthy School Lunches Programme, offering nutritious daily lunches at no cost to parents or caregivers, promoting their overall health. 
In a commitment to a focused learning environment, the school extends the existing ‘no phone use at class time’ rule to a complete ban on phones and accessories throughout the school day. This decision, stemming from consultations in 2023, underscores our dedication to a focused and safe learning environment and positive social interactions.

Further, as one of six schools in the Waikato participating in the Active As programme, supported by Sport Waikato and Sport NZ, Thames High can enhance its resources for promoting healthy activities, both in and outside school hours.
This initiative aligns with our commitment to fostering an active and vibrant school community.
