Principal's Message


E ngā hau e whā

E rere atu ana ngā mihi matakuikui ki a koutou

On behalf of all students, staff and the Board, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Ōpōtiki College website. With a proud history, we have much to offer.

Working in partnership with all whānau and the community to ensure all our tauira are equipped with the qualifications and personal attributes on leaving school to enable them to lead purposeful and successful lives: for themselves, the community, Aotearoa and beyond.

Our College vision: ‘Connected Learners, Confident Citizens: Tohenihorau, Toherauariki is central to all that we do at the College. We want our learners to have a strong sense of cultural and personal identity, and uphold our key values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience: Me Māhaki, Me Ngākau Titikaha, Me Tohetoa.

Nō reirā, tēnā koutou katoa

Julie Mees

Acting Principal
