Our Vision

Orewa College

Orewa College will be the pride of the district, promoting high student achievement, expectations of excellence in the curriculum and high participation and success in co-curricular activities. Its graduates will be responsible, independent, confident, proud, well balanced and motivated young adults.

Our Vision is Based on Respect

  • For oneself - 'be the best you can be'
  • For others - 'manners matter'
  • For the environment - 'keep it clean'



Our Mission Statement

Orewa College provides a supportive and challenging centre of learning for all students in their progress towards an enriched and responsible citizenship. 


We fulfil this throughout our programme, both curriculum and in the co-curricular area. 


We have a strong values programme, Manaaki Orewa, which we translate as "to foster, to support, to journey together".

We Believe

  • Our prime purpose is the education of our students and all decisions affecting the school will be based upon improving the educational outcomes of all students
  • Student learning is directly related to the quality of teaching and all staff continue developing their skills to provide the highest quality of teaching
  • A comprehensive values programme, Manaaki Orewa, and a structured set of learning strategies, Ako Orewa, should form part of the school's curriculum and culture
  • All staff at Orewa College will have an understanding of the School's vision and programmes, roles and structures that support that vision.  There will thus be consistency in what we do in the classroom, the school and the community aimed at the achievement of the vision
