Ormiston Primary School is the second school among the three schools along Ormiston Road opening in 2015. The schools are next to each other in what could be described as a “greater” campus.
Seven Flatbush schools, Ormiston Senior College, Ormiston Junior College, Ormiston Primary, Mission Heights Junior College, Mission Heights Primary school, Baverstock Oaks and Te Uho o te Nikau Primary School combine to make the Flatbush Seven Network. The local school Principals had a vision of teachers and leaders working alongside each other for professional learning and engaging in collaborative opportunities for the community benefit. Over the past few years the schools have come together on a combined educator only day to share expertise and learning.
