About Tamil School

Inspired by the words of Kaniyan Poongundranar “யாதும் ஊரே யாவரும் கேளிர்” To us all towns are one, all men our kin, Tamilians are always spreading wings in all corners of the world. Wherever we go we carry our precious language, culture, and tradition with us. Tamil is one of the ancient and longest surviving classical languages in the world and Tamil literature has existed for over 2000 years. We are proud of our heritage and strive to take it forward to the next generation.

Auckland Tamil School came into existence in March 2019 after our executive committee members felt the need for a dedicated school to teach the Tamil language and culture to our younger generations of Tamil diaspora.

The school is successfully run by a dedicated team of 6 teachers and volunteers who work hard for this noble cause.

Every year we conduct exams to move to the next level. The students will have an opportunity to demonstrate their Tamil speaking, writing, and comprehension & literary skills.
