Nau Mai haere mai ki Otorohanga South School

Our School caters for students from Years 1-8 and we have approximately between 320 -370 students on our roll each year. Our vision is to support students in becoming and remaining lifelong learners. We are an inclusive school that focuses on such values and attributes in students as:

  • Self Respect
  • Excellence
  • Risk Taking
  • Respect and Tolerance
  • Positive Relationships

We have an enrolment scheme in place to help manage our numbers. Make use of the maps on our site to see if you are in our zone for enrolment purposes. We currently have vacancies for new entrant students. I look forward to getting to know your child. Please ring the office if you have any further queries around enrolments.

We encourage you to become active members of our school community. In partnership, we can come together to create the best education for your children. Our staff is composed of highly trained, dedicated and caring teachers - each is working towards the common goal, providing your child with a complete education. Please feel welcome to share this task with us.

I am proud to lead a committed and highly capable team to help our students become and remain lifelong learners. It is an honour to be part of a school community that highly values the role we play in supporting students and families.
