Nau Mai Haere Mai, Welcome!

Oranga Primary was established in February 1949 and currently has a roll of approximately 310 year 1–6 students and has a combined staff of approximately 30. The school is set on the southern slopes of One Tree Hill with spacious park-like grounds and extensive learning resources including a library, and heated pool. The school boasts two fantastic adventure playgrounds, a school hall with stage facilities and recently modernised court and field areas.

Our school vision of Excellence = caring, critical and creative thinking is an integral part of every aspect of the learning day at Oranga. Our ‘values’ encourage children to have respect, to be team players, have pride and to be honest and respectful.

We have been awarded a ‘Healthy Heart’ award, a bronze ‘Travelwise’ award, a silver ‘Student Health Team’ award and we are a ‘SunSmart’ accredited school and an ASB Olympic School. Each year our young leaders (house captains, lunchtime leaders, librarians, road patrollers and peer mediators) organise events to allow other students to be actively involved in school life.

Our staff provide the very best learning programmes with a focus on literacy, numeracy and inquiry learning to cater for each and every child.

These are just a few of the things that make Oranga Primary a school of which we are very proud.

Together with our community, our Board of Trustees and staff work to provide education that will foster a desire and an interest in learning throughout life.
