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 are looking forward to meeting our new students and seeing our returning Year 8 students on Wednesday 3 February. Remember...
We have had a number of questions related to school shoes. Students are required to wear plain black leather lace-up shoes. The shoe and sole of the shoe must be black, no big branding detail on the shoe. Canvas shoes and other casual shoes are not suitable. The important aspect to consider is that your child will be wearing these shoes while in our technology rooms where safety is paramount and must be adhered to. This is applicable from the first day until the last day of the year.
