Mrs Meredith Blackman and Mrs Viv Mulgrew welcome you
On the Lone Kauri Road near Karekare Beach is a small side school, attached to the Oratia staffing schedule, but autonomous in its operation. It currently caters for 29 children, under the direction of a senior teacher. This side school has a special character of its own and is quite unique in New Zealand.
The classroom is nestled in a beautiful Waitakere bush garden where bird and insect life is abundant. Children get to explore this wonderful garden during their morning tea and lunchtime breaks. The garden is also a wonderful source of language, science and art inspiration.
Below are some pictures of our art and language work.
