Enrolments

We are open to enrolments from any students who would like to join us at our great school. As we have large grounds we do not have any zone restrictions and do not have an enrolment scheme in place. Currently we have students that travel from suburbs in north and east Wellington who choose to attend our school. Please remember that we are open for you to visit, and for enrolments from students aged 5 - 10 years of age whose parents would like their child to take their learning journey with us.

About Us

about

Owhiro Bay School is located on the beautiful South Coast in Wellington.

We offer quality teaching for Years 0-6 in a country setting 10 minutes drive from central Wellington. A roll of 110-140 children. Spacious grounds featuring a large grass field, hard courts, tennis court and two playgrounds provide a fun and stimulating environment for the children at Owhiro Bay School.

The community is central to how we do things at Owhiro Bay School. In partnership with Owhiro Bay Kindergarten we have established the Owhiro Bay Learning Community supporting learners from birth onwards. We enjoy a high level of community involvement and this is demonstrated through events such as the Annual Owhiro Bay Community Hangi and the Annual Owhiro Bay Fair. We have a number of active groups within the learning community; the Owhiro Bay Student Council, the Whanau Support Group and Parentlink to name a few.
