About Us

Ormond is a Contributing Primary School from Year 0 -Yr 6.  We have 5 classrooms: Kowhai (NE-Yr1), Kauri (Yr1-2), Karaka (Yr3-4), Puriri (Yr 4-5) and Rata (Year 5-6).

At the beginning of the year, the inside of our school was extensively rennovated and we now have a bright, welcoming and inspiring environment to work in.  We have a new resource room and library which are constantly updated with new books.

We have 22 networked computers with internet access.  We also have new Promethean Interactive Whiteboards installed in all classes.  These were funded by the 2011 Gala.  We have also recently begun using ipads and we currently have a ratio through the school of 1:3.

We strive to have children participating in many different activities - we have many sports teams, we always enter teams in the annual gymnastics festival, have children participating in the GATE programme and we have great success in School Speech competitions.  We have an annual Art Week and tri annual Schoolwide Production.  We celebrate our learning at the end of every term with a day's celebration.  We also keep alive a very valued tradition - Pet Day!  Pets of all shapes, breeds and sizes are welcomed - a great day enjoyed by all.

Outisde we have a very large playing field surrounded by many beautiful century old trees, a swimming pool, tennis/netball courts, covered lunch area and large playground, an extremely well equipped PE shed along with a very good range of gym equipment and the Ormond Community Hall onsite for extensive school use.

We have a very enthusiastic & committed staff - teachers, teacher aides and administration staff all work together to inspire students to produce their best results.  Our school is also supported by a very active community which is another one of our great resources.

We hope you find Ormond as great a place to be as we do!
