About Okaihau Primary School

more than an ordinary education


At Okaihau Primary School, students receive so much more than an ordinary education. We pride ourselves on creating a unique, exciting environment that embraces all types of learners and promotes growth both academically and personally. Students and families are also welcomed into a dynamic and supportive community.



At Okaihau Primary School, we make it our mission to create an educational atmosphere which is fun and gives our children a positive experience throughout their learning. Our programs help students use their thinking skills, which they learn in class, and teach them how to apply them to future experiences that they will encounter. We also strive for our children to show and display the values and attributes which we have taught them and encourage them to use them during school and also in the future.
