Term 1 starts on Wednesday 3 February! Our classrooms will be open from 8.30am.
We are proud to share with you the Education Review Office (ERO) report, summarising the review that was carried out in August of this year. Owairaka School continues to be on a 4-5 year review cycle, which is a status given only to high-performing schools
The Board is currently reviewing our 2015-17 charter and strategic planning document as we need to submit our annual update to the Ministry of Education in March. We invite you to see the adjustments we have made so far for 2016 here.
Welcome to Owairaka District School where we provide quality education in a very positive environment. We are a multicultural school that values and appreciates students from all cultures. We enjoy learning from each other. We are constantly striving to increase student achievement and offer students a wide range of experiences in order for them to do so. Children are taught at their own level and are carefully monitored to ensure extra help or extension programmes are accessed when necessary.
We have an open door policy and welcome visits from prospective parents. Feel free to ring the school office to make an appointment to come and see us.
Check out what happened at our 2015 celebration of Race Relations Day.
