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.
This Friday 6 December we have our Annual Showcase of Talent. Start time - 1.30pm in the school hall. All parents and caregivers welcome!
Prizegiving is on Friday 13 December at 12.00noon in our school hall. At this prizegiving, we acknowledge Cultural, Sporting and Academic Excellence. The school will remain open for students until 3.05pm however, if you choose to take your child home after Prizegiving that is fine.
