Learning and thriving in the place of light

Ki te Whei Ao, Ki te Ao Mārama e!

Welcome to Omarama School

Omarama School caters for new entrants to Year 8 children. Omarama Schools number one priority is your child, and their education. We are fully focused on providing your child with the skills they require to be active learners, who have strong social competencies to carry them into their future lives.

Omarama School was first established north of Omarama on Buscot Station in the 1930’s. It was moved to its present site during the 1940’s and grew to a four teacher school in the late 1980’s, as a result of local hydro electricity development.


Our Vision

To provide a well-rounded education, which encourages children to be confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners. In partnership with parents we are committed to providing a caring, safe, school that promotes each child’ academic, social and emotional development within a high quality learning community. We live our mission and vision by exploring and encouraging our school values which are regularly engaged with in our school.
