Thank you for considering to enrol your child at Orewa North Primary. Please consider making an appointment to meet with me to discuss further the needs of your child/ren and to learn more about the educational opportunities at Orewa North.
For those enrolling a child due to turn five, and to enter the primary school system, I encourage you to take advantage of our pre-school visit that is designed to assist children with the transition from preschool. This can be organised through the school office in association with the new entrant teacher.
Orewa North Primary opened on the 22nd May 1978 and is a primary school catering for children from Year One to Year Six. The current roll is approximately 320.
The School endeavours to provide a friendly and safe environment for the children to carry out their learning. It is the aim of the school to develop children with a good, sound grasp of the skills and knowledge required to provide the platform for future learning. Through the programme opportunities children receive both in and outside the classroom we aim to ensure children gain the self confidence to progress and achieve at their individual level.
It is important that a co-operative partnership between school and home is achieved to assist children to reach their potential. The School programme of reporting on children’s progress will involve at times, parents, teachers and children discussing how they can work together to help children reach this potential.
It is vital that parents become involved in their children’s education by at least finding out what they are doing at school. We welcome and need parental involvement to carry out aspects of school programmes and being involved in groups such as the Parent Teacher Association is a way of assisting the school.
The staff and I are committed to providing a quality education that is enjoyable for children and their families.
