The Otumoetai Way

The Otumoetai Way is a carefully constructed initiative for students to foster and bring to a reality the school values. Using student voice, key themes are developed at each year level to help students learn and exhibit the behaviours associated with these values:

Year 9: Identifying New Opportunities

Year 10: Making Positive Choices

Year 11: Taking Responsibility

Year 12: Developing Leadership

Year 13: Becoming Responsible Citizens

Commitment to the Otumoetai Way is an integral part of being a member of our Otumoetai College Community.

Strive for excellence – Kimihia tōu ake maunga teitei
Working together – Whakakotahitanga
Respect one and all – Whakakoha tētahi ki tētahi
Standing strong – Tū pakari i te ao

Otumoetai College, here we stand,
creating resilient learners where culture, diversity,
education and social responsibility are valued and
all learners achieve their potential.
