Welcome to Oropi School
BE ALL YOU CAN BE - WHAIA TE MATAURANGA
Oropi - By Kea
Deep and leafy, huts all around the Oropi kids.
Light shafts slicing.
Mud slide slipping into the gloom.
The shed’s tools, sharp and spiky, lying lazily in the sawdust.
Kids building, browsing.
Creative and kind, they lead and they think. Help with the hut.
Winding through the Gorge, voices on the bus.
Check out our wonderful choir's performance at the 2016 Music Festival held at Baycourt...
'Inspiring our students to believe in themselves and realise their potential within our rural community, so they can move forward as confident, contributing members of society.'
'Toi tu te mana, toi tu te whenua, toi tu te tangata'
Oropi School exists to educate our students through experimental learning and personalised opportunities, in doing so we guide them to know their strengths. Our rural school caters for children from years 1 to 8, developing leadership and a sense of tuakana-teina (close, co-operative, mutually-respectful relationships) across the school. A place where children can be children, take considered risks, exploring new ideas and have a sense of excitement about their own life-long learning.
Respect - Whakanui
Responsibility - Takohanga
Excellence – Hiranga
