Here are some dates to remember of events happening throughout term four at OIS.
We hope you had an enjoyable holiday break and are feeling refreshed and refuelled ready to get back into school tomorrow. Just a few reminders for term four.

On Monday the 10 of September, the Waitaki Boys High School Polyfest group came to OIS to perform. Their performance was so unbelievable that everyone had their eyes on them the whole time. The group danced, sung and had students playing on the drums. Even though the music was so fast, the boys were amazing, dancing and keeping in time to the beat.
Last week at OIS we had a great opportunity to watch a stunning performance by Bernard Mangakahia, called The Spirit of Polynesia. The aim of this performance is to help children find courage, belief, confidence and MANA.
