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. Our teachers and support staff are highly
skilled and recognise that all children are unique individuals. We
build self-confidence by valuing and respecting our similiarities
We work collaboratively to ensure our children
experience success and enjoyment in learning as well as
developing socially and emotionally.
Our school CARE values; Confidence, Respect, Aroha and
Encourage are explicitly taught and are embedded within
the fabric of our school culture.
Our aim is to encourage and develop children’s learning powers of 'Curious, Creative, Collaborative, Citizens so that they know how to learn and be the best that they can be, within a warm, caring and supportive environment.
We actively foster home-school partnerships because we know that children thrive best when we work together as a team with whanau and families. Our doors are always open and 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 .
