Ngā Tapuwae can be translated as 'Our Journey', and that is what our 2022 prospectus is, a collection of narratives that share journeys through Trident, from those who know us best.  Through these journeys we have captured our people, our values and our school culture.  We know you will enjoy meeting and learning of the stories within Ngā Tapuwae, and look forward to creating many more Trident journeys with our class of 2026.
