Welcome to Onewhero Area School

principal

Nau mai, haere mai ki te Kura Takiwā ō Onewhero. A very warm welcome to Onewhero Area School, a place where we strive to be the best we can be, where no limits are placed on the potential of our young people to thrive and succeed.

At Onewhero Area School students are supported by a strong Board of Trustees, staff and community to discover their strengths and talents and develop into young people of good character.

Students who attend here are given opportunities to participate in an education that encompasses the whole person including academic, sporting, cultural and other pursuits.

Our core values as expressed in the school charter are; Purpose - Ako, Character - Mahi ngā Tahi, and Community - Whanaungatanga. These can be seen as you walk around the school and see students engaged in purposeful learning activities, showing leadership or just cooperating together in the playground. A feature of the school is the positive interaction between junior, middle and senior school students.

I would invite anyone interested in exploring the school further to contact me for a tour. We would love to show off our fantastic school!

Ngā mihi nui ki ā koutou
