Our Condolences

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Tukaki and Pou whanau. Recently both whanau lost very special Nanas. Arohanui ki a koutou katoa!



A special welcome to new students and their whanau: Levi Rikihana, Tyrone Baggs and Mack Baker.



School photos will be taken tomorrow. It would be great to have as many students as possible in uniform for their photos.

The photographer will take late orders in the hall.

Further details and online ordering at www.lizdaviesphotography.co.nz.

Free Vision Testing and Free Glasses

We have had 178 consent forms returned for the free vision testing. That’s great! Testing will take place From Monday 7 September to Thursday 10 September at the Northland College hall. It’s not too late to send in the form (get one from the office if you need to).

Helping My Papa

One day I went over to my Papa’s house. I helped him clean out the garage. First we picked up the rubbish. Then we fixed the garage walls. My papa asked if I could help lift some of the iron to fix the garage. I had to be very careful of the sharp iron. I put the iron up close to the wood so my papa can hammer the nail through the iron and into the wood. I was happy to help him pick up the rubbish and fix the garage. Helping people makes me feel good.
