The Best Little School in the West

A supportive environment challenging children to become responsible learners

Welcome to Omata. We are a decile 10, state-funded full primary school with approximately 160 students in a semi-rural location on the outskirts of New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand. We have a proud tradition as a community school and our reputation is based around a very successful partnership with families.

Our school offers quality education in a caring learning environment. We have an active ‘open door’ policy which encourages parents into classrooms and around the school at all times and I urge you to take the opportunity to become involved.

We have a stunning physical environment which includes a well established native bush with an outdoor classroom area and outstanding playground facilities. A very special feature of our school is the continuity of education we provide for children from Year 1 to Year 8. Our doors are always open to discuss any facet of your child’s education.

No one went to town

‘No one went to town’ is the exciting story of May Tarrant and her family breaking in a farm in the high steep hills of Taranaki in the North Island of New Zealand in the early 1900s.

Mary Johnston and her mother, Phyllis, recently visited our school and were thrilled to find the book very much alive and being used as an integral part of children’s learning.

The visit to Omata School highlighted to Mary that the books are an important legacy and needed to be passed on to future generations. They have decided to reprint the first two books of the ‘May’ series.
