Welcome to Owhiro Bay School online. We hope you enjoy viewing our school and our students involved in some of the many and varied learning activities they experience at Owhiro Bay School. Also we hope you can find the information you require on this site. If you can not find the information you need or you would like to come to visit us, please call the school office during the school year and we can arrange to show you what a fantastic school Owhiro Bay is!
Owhiro Bay School was established in 1930 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 110-145 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 Country Fair.
At Owhiro Bay School we are extremely proud of our school, the accomplishments of our students with their teachers and our fantastic outdoor environment. With an ‘open door’ policy we often have, and also encourage, parents and whanau to visit our school to see us in action.
We are open to enrolments from any students aged 5-10 years of age who would like to take their learning journey with us at our great school. We do not have any zone restrictions and do not have an enrolment scheme in place. Please feel free to visit or contact us to find out more.
