Principal's Message...

Rebecca Meek —

Our Purpose: To prepare students to be active participants who will contribute to their community.

Tēnā koutou katoa, Malo e lelei, Talofa lava, Bula vinaka

Tomorrow, classroom teachers are going to be spending a day unpacking the PaCT Tool (An assessment for Learning tool), looking at your child's learning and what deliberate acts of teaching will need to be delivered to enable next steps to happen.

We appreciate your support with keeping your children at home tomorrow.


You will be aware that Wellington has moved into Covid Level 2, so this is a timely reminder to us all that we need to ensure that we are only coming to school if students are well. On Monday we had 60 students and 3 staff away sick. I appreciate that accommodating sick children is extra pressure on families however, we can not have sick students at school.


Our school uniform fosters a sense of identity, belonging and pride in our pupils. It ensures a consistently high standard of dress is worn by pupils throughout the day and provides a cost-effective and practical dress code. We are incredibly proud of our school uniform and have pride in how we look. Can you please check your child’s uniform and make sure they're clean and tidy for Term 3.  Please take this opportunity to check your child's shoes as we have noticed that students shoes are not looking their best. Remember no canvas shoes! We have noticed that non-regulation uniform items have started to appear. At O.I.S our rules regarding jewellery are 

  •  a watch
  •  and a small plain stud in each ear.
  •  nail polish, makeup and dyed hair are not permitted

Have a wonderful, safe weekend
