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.
Our Purpose: To prepare students to be active participants who will contribute to their community.
Kia Ora Parents - Over the last 3 weeks, I have had a number of conversations with students and put reminders in the newsletter, about our students concerning behaviour on their bikes.
