Welcome  to Ongaonga School

‘Striving for Excellence’

Ongaonga School provides quality education within our country setting.

All children are encouraged to reach their potential through exploration and inquiry learning.

Ka whakaaetia,

Ka Whakamanawatia,

Ki ona taumata katoa.

Ongaonga 7’s

Ongaonga School hosts the Ongaonga 7-a-side tournament every year when over 17 Central Hawke’s Bay schools assemble to compete in Football, Rugby, Hockey and Netball.

This year we celebrate our 54th running of the event!

The Ongaonga T.R.E.E Values

The Ongaonga T.R.E.E values are Teamwork, Respect, Effort and Empathy. We get to learn how to achieve these values and demonstrate them in all that we do.

AgriKids Regional Finals 2021

Our school is very involved in AgriKids and out of the last 6 years, teams have been successful in qualifying for the National Competition four times!

This year, 2021, the team of Sam, Robert and Riley (the Ongaonga Musterers) will be heading to Christchurch to complete in the National final of AgriKids.   A fantastic achievement!
