All scheduled teacher strikes have been cancelled. This includes the whole school strike on Friday 21 June, the Year 11 strike on Tuesday 25 June and the Year 12 strike on Tuesday 2nd July.

There will, however, be a paid union meeting on Tuesday 25 June to discuss the offer made to PPTA by the government. Classes will finish after Kaiarahi Time (11.00am). The Te Horo and Manakau buses will move forward to 11.20am to accommodate this change. The Waitohu bus will run as usual. As all members of the teaching staff will be attending the PUM, special arrangements will have to be made if supervision of students is required – please contact the office if you wish to discuss this.

On Thursday 13th June the official announcement of the 2019 Ōtaki College Board of Trustees’ election was made. I have great pleasure in welcoming new trustees: Penny Gaylor, Sarah Ropata and Shelley Warwick, and returning trustees Paul Carlyon, Dale Nakhla and Maewa Kaihau (Ngā Hāpū o Ōtaki representative). They join newly elected staff representative, Natasha Simpson, and student representative, Hetal Patel.  I am looking forward to working with the new Board on developing how education will look at Ōtaki College in the future.

Students Film PP2Ō Bridge Demolition

posted 11 Jun 2019, 22:56 by OC Web   [ updated 11 Jun 2019, 22:57 ]

Digital Media students are currently working on the latest PP2Ō monthly update. This month they are documenting the demolition of the old north end bridge. Matariki Black, Iraia Sarich and Whetu Rehu-Murchie have been out in the community interviewing people who remember it being built - 81 years ago! Some of the people interviewed remember when County Road was the only way north out of town. And one gentleman could roller skate across the bridge when it was built because cars were 10 minutes apart! 
The film crew were  there on Monday filming the demolition as the bridge came down.
