Tai Poutini Polytechnic in the West Coast Community

Tai Poutini Polytechnic is proud to be a part of the strong West Coast community. We are lucky to live in this magnificent part of the world and, as your local tertiary education provider, we see our role as much more than just upskilling our residents.

We are part of the local community and we place great value on getting involved in events and activities that make a difference to our people. Whether it’s through sponsorship, administration assistance or getting out there and lending a hand on the day, we’ll be there when it matters.

Tai Poutini Polytechnic has sponsored a range of community events including:

  • Farmlands Agfest Jo Seagar cooking school
  • Friends of Waiuta
  • Grey District Youth Trust
  • Greymouth Waitangi Day Picnic
  • Tuatara Trail Run

Our culinary arts students supported the police by at the annual Blue Light Breakfast, providing a cooked breakfast and packed lunch for local volunteers. Outdoor Education students and staff then showed them a great time on the river that afternoon.

There’s always something going on at TPP. Interested? Come, join our community.
