COMMUNITY GROUPS & CLUBS

The Tasman/Kina area is made up of a diverse range of community from orchardists and farming people to lifestylers, who choose to live in this beautiful coastal environment.

It comprises populations of people who have either lived here for many generations or have chosen to come and live here from elsewhere in New Zealand or from overseas. As such the area has a high sense of community belonging.

  • We are proud of our two local primary schools.
  • There are a number of community groups and sporting groups

Education
