​More Information

Located in the affluent East Auckland suburb of Howick, Owairoa Primary School has a proud tradition of excellence in all aspects of a students’ school life.

Opened in 1961, and catering for children aged 5 to 11 in their first six years of schooling, we seek to build upon the high standards of excellence that the past has endowed. We have a zone-free policy, so proudly welcome enrolments from all those choosing to attend our school.

Our vision is to lead students along a pathway that challenges them to continually strive for new horizons, as we prepare them for their future.  Our mission is to provide pathways to access challenging, stimulating, quality education that creates self motivated, lifelong learners equipped for a changing world.

Our curriculum is at the cutting edge of modern educational practice and is designed to assist the emerging independence of children in their learning. We have the dynamic, professional team to provide the rich and stimulating learning experiences, so necessary in these early formative years.

Our many specialist teaching programmes encourage students to participate and explore a diverse daily curriculum delivery. This positive balance of academic, physical, social and cultural opportunities allows each and every student to excel at their own individual level.

Owairoa Primary School has an ‘open door’ policy and actively encourages a true student, teacher, parent partnership in our desire to build and maintain the high levels of co-operation between the home and school.

We proudly welcome International Students to join our Owairoa ‘family’ for studying on a short-term basis from one week, up to their full six years of primary education.  Parents are also welcomed to participate in our free Parent English Support Programme.

Our school has high expectations for our International Students and encourage them to do their best in all their endeavours. In return, the school is committed to encouraging and helping each individual to achieve, to the best of their ability during their time in New Zealand.

We extend a personal invitation to all prospective parents to phone our Principal, Alan McIntyre on (09)5380060 or e-mail him directly on principal@owairoa.school.nz to arrange a time to discuss the positive enrolment opportunities we are able to offer for your child and for a chance for you to view our school in action.

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make. In welcoming new parents to the school please feel assured that our staff has a genuine interest in your child’s education, welfare and development.  Your child – our guidance – their future.
