Thank you for taking the time to explore our website.
I hope you find it useful and informative.
At One Tree Point School children receive a high quality,
child-centred education that caters for their current and
future needs. Our teachers and support staff are highly
skilled and recognise that all children are unique individuals.
We work collaboratively to ensure all children experience
success and enjoyment in learning and are developed to
become independent, lifelong learners.
Our school CARE values; Confidence, Respect, Aroha and
Encourage are explicitly taught and are embedded within
the fabric of our school culture.
We cherish our connection with our local iwi and all of our children understand the importance of being part of a bicultural nation.
We value the support of our wonderful community and appreciate our very active PTA group. We actively foster home-school partnerships because we know that children thrive best when we work together as a team with whanau and families. We welcome your feedback and suggestions for ways in which we can improve.
I urge parents to make every effort to stay in touch with school activities and events through this website and Facebook .

Alert Level 2 - Welcome back!
We have all been really excited to welcome everyone back to school in Alert Level 2. It's been so lovely to catch up with all of our friends and see all of our children enjoy spending time together.
We have adapted our classroom environments to make them as safe as possible and are making sure children are using really good hygience practices throughout the day.
Throughout lockdown, I have been truly impressed by the way we have come together as a community to support our children. I have been particularly thankful for everything you have done at home in a situation that hasn't always been easy. You have provided inspiration, support and motivated your children to engage in learning in a completely new and unfamiliar way. I also understand that there are many families who face on-going challenges, both financial and emotional, again, please let us know if there is anything we can do to support you.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful team of teachers and support staff; I am very grateful to work with such an amazing team of colleagues - this period of time has been unprecedented and throughout the last seven weeks I have been continually humbled by the level of commitment, collaboration and positivity our staff have shown to each other, our children and their whanau. The amount of new learning has been enormous and I know teachers are looking forward to including some of the tools and strategies they have used during lockdown in the classroom
