North and East Otago Attendance Service

Our Vision

Our Vision is that each student is attending school every day to learn and to achieve according to their abilities and needs as well as to fulfill their potential and develop their talents. Going to school is an essential part of the process in the development of young people to equip them for the challenges of the 21st century and to give them the tools to be successful and productive members of society. It is our firm belief that education is the key to a healthy society where every person can lead a productive and meaningful life. 

Your sponsorship matters

Your sponsorship not only makes a difference, but it also has the potential to create a lasting impact on a student's education and life.

We extend our thanks to Ross Robertson of Colliers, who generously donated chrome books to aid students in their studies. 

​​​​​​​His contribution dramatically enhanced the students' learning experience.
