About Us

From the Principal...
Ohoka School is a co-educational State Primary School in the small rural community of Ohoka, 20km north of Christchurch.

Our vision for the school is 'The Ultimate Learning Experience'  which articulates very clearly what we are striving for, for our students.

At Ohoka School our strategic goals for the future are to develop:
  • A connected physical environment
  • Proudly connecting with our community
  • Future-focussed student-centred learning
  • Embed and live our core values - Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience
Our school encourages and works towards a family friendly atmosphere. 
The importance of all members of our school community taking responsibility for their own actions, showing respect at all times is recognized as a priority, as is the importance of building resilience which has been shown to be a key skill to lifelong success.
 
We encourage our older students to show caring in various ways by buddying them up with younger students through our 'buddy' class system.  We build leadership in our seniors by giving them many opportunities such as becoming House Leaders or Head students and to take on various responsibilities across the school.

A wide range of outside agencies supports the school. These include the Public Health Nurse, School Dental Therapist Service and advisory services including Audio Visual testers and a Curriculum Advisory Service.

Please make an appointment so you can come and a look around our lovely learning environment.
