Parent Information


School Donations

Omarama School has opted in to the Ministry of Education donation scheme.




Prior to enrolling your child on or after their 5th birthday, you and your child are invited to attend pre-entry visits to the junior classroom. Please ring the office six weeks prior to the actual enrolment. We can be very flexible with these visits. School visits aid your child’s transition to school. 

On enrolment day, you are asked to bring with you a copy of your child’s birth, immunisation certificates and any relevant medical details and emergency contact numbers. It is helpful if students enrolling from another school have some transfer information and any books from their previous school. Omarama School will request their full records from their last school after enrolment.

School Amenities

Omarama School is lucky enough to have their very own swimming pool for school swimming lessons. The parent community also has the opportunity to use the school pool, after school hours for a small payment of $50.

The school is fortunate to have a wonderful tunnel house also, and with parent help we are able to offer Garden Club to those garden enthusiasts. This group meets weekly and shows pride in the produce that is grown in the tunnel house.
