Okains Bay School is a unique, rural school. We are located on Banks Peninsula (approximately an hour drive from Christchurch). Our school caters from Year 0-8 students.
Okains Bay School is well resourced, spacious (with plenty of indoor and outdoor learning spaces), and our small student numbers mean the students receive plenty of individual attention.
Our school vision is:
Learning today for a better tomorrow!
"tenei ra ako mo te apopo pai!"
Our school values are:
Manaakitanga. Eke, Ngaki, Whakamanawa.
Confidence, Respect, Achievement, Effort
Our school mission statement is
“Iti rearea teitei kahikatea ka taea.”
(even the small rearea bird can ascend to the great heights of the Kahikatea tree.)
We want our students to develop positive links with each other, their community and the world; develop a range of learning skills, and to develop the characteristics to be life-long achievers.
