North Otago's only Intermediate School
Catering specifically for the needs of Year 7 and 8 students
We pride ourselves on delivering high-quality programmes that meet the diverse needs of our developing adolescents. Students enjoy being at our school and develop a sense of pride in both themselves and the wider school community.
Our Vision is for our school to be a place of positive energy - this is something that you will feel as you enter our grounds, and as you talk with our students and their parents.
Our Mission Statement is “To prepare students to be active participants who will contribute to their community”. We are constantly looking for and finding opportunities for our students to do that, while they are here – with the hope that this will set them up to continue to give to their community beyond their time at OIS. Students enjoy making connections with their wider community and more importantly, it puts learning into a valuable context.
It has been a very busy two days at OIS as we hosted 90 students from James Hargest Junior High School in Invercargill.
OIS Cross Country will be held at St Kevin's College at 1.30pm on the 14 August, 2019.
An information evening for families who are enrolling or considering enrolment for 2020 is being held this coming Tuesday 13 August, 2019 starting in the school hall at 6pm. All are welcome to come along to see aspects of the school programme in action and speak with pupils and teachers.
