Taihape Area School has a collaborative and very positive relationship with local iwi and Mokai Patea Services. Mokai Patel Services facilitate the Rangatahi Mentoring Programme. This provides support for students who require extra encouragement.
Mokai Patea Services also support the School Breakfast programme by donating milk, bread, and spreads. They also provide lunches (Mondays and Wednesdays) for students.
