Welcome to Onehunga Primary School

    Our weekly newsletters go home on a Thursday and outline the most recents events that have occurred and there is a term calendar usually on the back page with the most recent events listed.

    You can access our newsletter here.
    If you would like to have an email alert each week with a link to our newsletter sent to you, please email Viki Holley our Principal at to add your name to the email group.

    Our 2017 charter has recently been submitted to the Ministry of Education. Families were asked for feedback at the end of last year and our Board of Trustees has been working on it since last year. This document outlines our strategic direction for 2017. You can view our 2017 Charter here.

    Have you ‘liked’ our Facebook page - ‘Onehunga Primary School’? We recommend this as an effective way to get information in an emergency situation and a good way to hear about things we are doing between newsletters.

    Child Protection Policy:
    Our Child Protection policy and related procedures in relation to the Vulnerable Children's Act have recently been updated. These are available here.

    Online Safety and Use Agreement for family
    Our increased use of digital technology and learning in an online environment has meant we needed to update our agreements with families. This agreement has now been sent home for families to complete.  Please don't hesitate to contact your child's teacher if you have any queries.

    ICAS Exams:

    Is your child participating in the upcoming ICAS exams? Get the latest information here.

    Health and Safety:

    There are some important reminders for families related to Health and Safety and keeping children and adults safe in our school. Please do not be offended by these measures. They are simply aiming to keep everyone safe!

    • Please ensure that if you are coming in to school for anything other than a drop off or pick up, you sign in (and out) our visitor book in the office. It is crucial in the case of an emergency that we are aware and can account for all adults in the school.
    • Volunteers helping within the school on a regular basis - e.g. reading volunteers or helpers in class will need to be police vetted. We have just been through this process with all of our parents who went on camp. It simply means completing a form and listing identification on the form. From there, we send it away to be vetted. These forms are available from our office. 

    A term calendar can be found within the 'What's Happening' section of our website.

    The Education Review Office visited us in Term 1 of 2015. You can see our report here- Education Review Office Report. This report confirms the verbal feedback we received about our existing strengths and confirmed that the strategic direction as outlined in our school charter is a sound one. Thank you to all of the staff and community for your input into our consultation in 2014 which informed our strategic direction as outlined in our charter.
    You can read the full report  here.
