Gallery Guidelines

Before your visit to Te Tuhi please discuss our gallery guidelines with your class.

  • Keep the art exhibitions clean by not eating or drinking inside
  • Care for artworks by not touching them or running in the gallery
  • Mobile phones can be very distracting, turn them off when in the gallery
  • There may be other visitors in the gallery, keep voices down
  • Contact our Schools Educator if you wish to take photographs or videos in the gallery

Health and Safety Guidelines

Te Tuhi's educator aims to provide a safe environment for students, minimising and managing risks by having clear guidelines in place. Our educator is a registered teacher and meets the guidelines of the professional standards for teachers as set by the New Zealand Teachers Council. Our educator possesses the core competencies required for LEOTC providers.


The safety of LEOTC participants is a shared responsibility between participants and providers of LEOTC. It is Te Tuhi's responsibility to provide competent staff, the required health and safety equipment and the development of a general RAMS form.

Te Tuhi has a health and safety policy and our educator is first aid-trained. Te Tuhi's Health and Safety policies are available upon request. We maintain an Accident Register which is to be completed for all incidents regardless of how minor they are.

All teachers are required to bring a current register when visiting, and it is the responsibility of the teacher to have this accessible at all times.

Te Tuhi is responsible for the safe compliance of the building and fixtures and how the students interact within the Te Tuhi built environment. However all schools and teachers from that school still hold the overall responsibility for the safety for all children within that group.

It is the responsibility of students to adhere to institution and school health and safety guidelines.
