School Vision and Values

Omakau School vision:

"Through our influence, example and persistent effort we aim to help our students become confident individuals who experience satisfaction through positive relationships, personal achievement and by contributing to their school and community".

Omakau School values:

Haepapa/Respect (for ourselves, for others and for property)

Manaakitanga/Responsibility (for the way we treat others, for the way we approach our learning, for the way we contribute to our school and community).

Our values give us meaning and motivation.

They are expressed in everyday actions and interactions both in our school and in our wider community.

Nga mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa.

Warm greetings to you all.

Omakau School is a rural school in the heart of Central Otago.

Students enjoy their learning in a caring, respectful environment. They benefit from trusting relationships with their teacher and each other.

Our aim is to ensure we provide the very best educational and developmental experiences we can for all our pupils.

We offer a range of stimulating learning opportunities within a well resourced, modern environment as well as opportunities to explore our unique local environment outside the classroom.

We value the small class sizes we offer, the range of activities and resources available and the high quality teachers we have.
