Ōpunake Primary: Creating a Future of Possibilities
At Ōpunake Primary, we are dedicated to creating a positive learning environment that encourages students to think outside the box. Our school focuses on providing hands-on learning experiences for our students, while simultaneously incorporating the use of technology to enhance their learning and creativity.
We strive to create a space where all students are respected and provided with the tools they need to reach their full potential. With our comprehensive curriculum, small class sizes and dedicated teachers, Ōpunake Primary is the perfect place for your child to learn and grow.
Our Local Place Based Curriculum
Our school is proudly named after the township of Ōpunakē. However during the early 1970's the school adopted a symbol, which was created by Alan Love. We believe it may have been at the request of the bi-lingual class. We have since received Alan's permission to recolour the original symbol in our school colours. We are proud to honour this unique symbol and the key values it represents.
Mana the Lion symbolises our P.R.I.D.E values.
Perseverance: Te Manawanui
Diligence: Whakapau kaha
