Our vision at Otama School is

Little Footprints... Big Steps

Leaving a mark in our community

We are proud to be small school in Southland. Our values are:

  • Community

  • Accept responsibility

  • Respect

  • Excellence


We are proud of the way we learn at Otama School. Small class numbers mean that we can offer individual help to all our students and that they can move to learning spaces that suit their learning styles and tasks.

The five key competencies in the New Zealand curriculum are very important to us;

  • Managing self

  • Thinking

  • Relating to others

  • Participating and contributing

  • Using language, symbols and text.

We have these competencies at the heart of everything we do so that we can move our learning into the future to produce the leaders of tomorrow.
