Our Children from the Four Winds

Otonga School Te Kura o Tihiōtonga is a Primary School in the North Island of Aotearoa, NZ, and welcomes students from Years 1 to 6.

Our large, multicultural school has a roll of 560 students. Māori students make up 22 percent of our school roll. Our school attracts international fee-paying students and many children who speak English as a second language. There are an increasing number of children from diverse ethnicities who come to us from the four winds. This is represented in our logo of the four winds.

We have four house groups, each with a different colour. These colours represent the four winds of north, south, east and west because the children of our school come from these four directions of the world.

Hau raki = North wind (green)           Hau rawhiti = East wind (yellow)

Hau tonga = South wind (purple)     Hua a uru = West wind (orange)    

United by the four winds, we grow stronger together.

 

Mā te kōtahitanga e ngā hau e whā, ka kaha whakatupu ngātahi tātau.
