Oamaru Intermediate is a school for everyone. It is a place of positive energy where children make new friends and meet new challenges in a supportive environment. Our teaching and learning vision is for students to enjoy learning, have a positive image of themselves as a learner, experience success, strive for excellence and see themselves as part of a community to which they contribute.
We place an emphasis on building strong respectful relationships with our students and families and it is in this environment that we can support your child through a time of personal growth and change. We position the learner at the centre of everything and have developed a curriculum which is responsive to the needs, abilities and interests of young adolescents.
We have started into a new phase of New Zealands response to COVID-19 and it is very different than anything most of us have ever experienced. I wanted to reassure you that our school staff and Board of Trustees will continue to work to support your childs learning and wellbeing in the next weeks.
New Zealand Police released multilingual messages for our communities about the country's move to Covid-19 Alert level 4. Police are here to keep our communities safe and help prevent harm, but it's more important than ever that people help us with this.
