Welcome to Ōtorohanga College
Ōtorohanga College is open for all students including those sitting NZQA Exams. Nothing has changed for our College.
Welcome to Ōtorohanga College, a co-educational secondary school in the Northern King Country Town of Ōtorohanga.
Ōtorohanga College strives to create a learning community based on a shared vision and set of values, where together we will develop independent, motivated and lifelong learners within a caring, supportive and inclusive environment.
We are proud of our kura; it is about learning and people. Here we support the individual and group to grow and achieve.
Ōtorohanga College offers its students an extensive range of subjects to ensure that every student gains the academic qualifications and social skills essential for success beyond school.
We are very short of daily relievers especially for Mondays to Wednesdays but other days also. We are particularly short of those who can take technology classes as well. If you are a registered teacher who can help us out please contact Tim Jenkinson at the College.
NEW SPORTS TRACKSUITS
It has finally been confirmed and now students have the exciting opportunity to purchase brand new Navy Canterbury tracksuits. These tracksuits can be worn to and from College sporting fixtures and are of excellent quality that will stand the test of time. Watch the notices to see when you are able to try one on and place your order. Get organised to put your order in asap!!!!!
WHY WE ARE UPGRADING TRACKSUITS
In the past our college has supplied these to our Firsts’ teams, but over the years these have either been lost, worn or simply not returned. We are now at the stage where we can barely supply 2 teams. Any monies now will be allocated to replenishing playing uniforms which will not be covered by sponsorship.
To eliminate the need for codes to purchase separate jumpers, hoodies or sportswear the college and Sports Council has chosen a tracksuit (as pictured below) which will be phased in as our school sports tracksuit. The decision for students to purchase their own tracksuits has a lot of advantages. We all know how great the teams look when they are all wearing the same uniform. Our athletes will be better fitted and they can have this available all year round. However, we must stress that this is for sporting events and should not be considered as a part of the school uniform.
The cost of each tracksuit is $135 each. We believe this price is reasonable for a quality Canterbury branded tracksuit as this will retail at around $189. All our first teams will be encouraged to purchase their tracksuits however this is a large expense for some and students can continue to sell chocolates to help cover this expense.
Payment for this tracksuit will need to be paid into our college office before an order will be placed. Once we have a lot of 10 ordered this will be placed with Peter Burton who will then process the order. The Sports Coordinator will have different sizes so students can try these on before purchasing.
