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.
The process of appointing a new Principal has begun and Teacher Only Days.
Some fine people (Maddox, Rayffe, Luke, Noah and Lee) made some scooter ramps for scooter/skate club. It took us nearly a whole term. We had our ups and downs but we worked hard and together to get the job done, but we could never have done it without Mr King the Hard Materials teacher and Mrs Meek for making a scooter club so... Thank you:)
They have been practising hard for their upcoming performance for the final assembly of the term tomorrow at 9.00 am. They've been getting together weekly to rehearse their skills throughout term 2, by creating original work based on classic and new ideas. Get ready for some great fun and variety performances.
