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.
As week 5 draws to an end, it is hard to believe that we are at the start of a new month. We have certainly hit the floor running. Both Year 7 and 8 have had their first technology rotation, it has been great to see so much engagement and success for students.
The first meeting for 2021 will be held next Monday 8 March in Room 11 starting at 7 pm. If you know of any new parents joining the school this year please encourage them to come along. All Welcome!
Students will finish school at 1.30pm on this day as our staff will be participating in a First Aid Training Course. There will be supervision for those students who catch the bus after school. You must contact the office (4370822) A.S.A.P. to let the office know if you wish your child to be supervised.
