Principal's Message

Otahuhu College has a national reputation, an outstanding history and proud traditions.

For Otahuhu College however, the most important thing is what happens each and every day, each and every class and that is the quality of teaching and learning that occurs. Our students, your children deserve the very best education possible and it is our responsibility as teachers to make sure that we do what is necessary to ensure that when your child graduates from Otahuhu College they have the same, if not better opportunities and choices as students from any school.


For our students, for our community, our aim has to be to provide the excellent classroom teaching, the personalised learning,  the high expectations that are needed for your children to have the very best possible future.


We, like all schools want what is best for your child, we want to help them achieve all that they can possibly achieve. However we do not know our students as well as you know your sons and daughters, so I strongly encourage you to talk to the College, to make sure that we are providing the education that your son, your daughter deserves. At Otahuhu College we welcome parents and realise how important parental and community involvement is in helping your child achieve at the levels they are capable of and the levels that you expect.
