Tirine Publishing Ltd was founded in 2003 by Basil Carryer, an experienced teacher and university lecturer, to supply schools with curriculum-related posters. After initially focussing on importing posters from overseas, it eventually changed to publishing resources more relevant to New Zealand schools. Along with this change was the development of the display set concept. A display set allows a teacher to quickly mount an eye-catching and relevant display within a few minutes.
In recent years, Tirine poster sets have been introduced to Australian schools through our Australian distributor Southern Cross. Significant numbers of Australian schools now have Tirine poster sets displayed on their walls.
Today, Tirine publishes poster sets that specifically focus on meeting the achievement objectives of middle to senior school subjects in the New Zealand and Australian Curriculums.
