Welcome to 2018

We welcome you all to an exciting, eventful and prosperous 2018. A special welcome, kia ora koutou, to our new families.
Our teachers are full of enthusiasm for their new classes and hope to develop really productive partnerships with you and your children.
We will continue to emphasize and build on our school values of being CONFIDENT, ADVENTUROUS, RESPECTFUL and ENCOURAGING learners. These values are woven into and through the key competencies of Managing Self, Relating to Others and Participating and Contributing in ways that will enhance social and academic learning.
School will be as good for the children as they allow it so we do encourage all children and their families to get involved and to make the most of all opportunities that are presented.
Each day gives us the chance to do better that we did the day before, to stretch ourselves in new learning and personal challenges, to really make the most of what each day presents.
Our school whakatauki states, "He taonga rongonui te aroha ki te tangata - Goodwill to others is a precious gift or treasure." We enjoy much goodwill in our school and consider it a real privilege to be a part of the Otumoetai community.
Enjoy the new school year.
Naumai, haere mai ki te kura Otumoetai.
