Advanced Learner Camp was held between 8 – 10th May at Totara Spring’s Camp, Matamata. 

Students were delivered challenges by Bio-Ethicist, Dr Deb Stevens regarding their ethical and legal perspectives. Physical challenges such as abseiling and other individual and team challenges were a major part of the camp.

Huge thanks to Totara Spring’s Staff, Otumoetai College Staff, Deb Stevens and our students for a fantastic camp.



At the recent PTA meeting, held on Wednesday evening (we meet on the third Wednesday of each month), the PTA donated $25,000.00 towards equipment in the new Fitness Centre.
This included two Impulse Commercial Treadmills and five Indoor Rowing Machines.
This generous donation is certainly appreciated and well done our PTA.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees I wish to inform you that with great reluctance we have accepted the resignation of our Principal, Dave Randell, as from the end of this year 2017.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, community, staff and students we cannot thank Dave enough for his dedication and commitment to our school over the past 17 years. Thirty years as a successful Principal is an amazing achievement.

Hi all

We don't realize how valuable everyday things are until we lose them.

Tonight we will all go home to a dry house, many people in Edgecumbe don't even have a house to go home, to let alone a dry one .

So, what are we going to do?
