Parent Teacher Association

Welcome to Ōtūmoetai Intermediate. We are pleased to have you here and part of our terrific school.

Having children here ourselves currently and in previous years, we know that opportunities abound and await your child over this next school year. These opportunities are school/teacher managed, with the definite need for parent involvement on various levels throughout the school year to support the teachers and school in running such fantastic programmes and events for our children. So please accept this as an open invitation for you as parents to be part of this school, when and how you are available to do so.

As parents, at this level of schooling we have found that our children have loved knowing that we are, and still want very much to be, part of their school lives. Despite what they might say, it is important to them.

One of the ways you can be an effective part of this school community is to come along to Ōtūmoetai Intermediate PTA (Parent Teacher Association) meetings. We are all parents of children who attend this school who meet to form that critical link between the school, teachers and home.

Having contact with other parents is different and often difficult at Intermediate level compared to Primary School, so this is an ideal way to meet other parents of children that your child goes to school with. You also gain valuable insights into how and why the school is run as it is and able to have direct conversations with our Principal, Henk Popping.
