Orewa North Primary School is located 40 kilometres north of Auckland at the Hibiscus Coast beach resort of Orewa. The school is located two blocks from the beach which is a natural attraction for all families associated with the school.
The school opened in May 1978 and is a Primary School catering for students from Year I to Year 6. The current roll of just on 300 is expected to continue to grow as more families are attracted to the life style the area provides and the on going residential development.
The school provides a friendly and safe environment for the children. We aim to provide the children with a good sound grasp of the skills and knowledge required to form the platform for future learning with particular emphasis on numeracy, literacy
and communication skills.
Thus our school motto: Learning; the link
to the future. The teaching programme has an enquiry approach that
encourages students to develop thinking skills with the solo model used
to provide the framework for learning. lCT is becoming an important tool
for this learning with increasing numbers of devices being used across
the school and within individual class rooms.
NEW - take a look at the new
It is important that a co-operative
partnership between school and home is achieved to assist children to
reach their potential.
We welcome and need parental involvement
to carry out aspects of the school programmes.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss what our school has to offer with prospective parents and children. Please feel free to contact the school office to make an appointment.
