Whānau Education Action Plan

Currently the school is liaising with Keryn Bristowe from Te Taitokerau Attendance service and our School Social Worker Lucy Taurua Mason who have selected children and whānau to support with their learning.  Over the next few weeks Keryn and/or Lucy will be in touch with whānau we believe may like to be involved.  If you are contacted and need to talk to Whaea Chicky about anything please do not hesitate.


Junior Syndicate Matariki

The Junior Syndicate would like to invite you to their Matariki celebrations on Friday 1st July 11.30am to 1.30pm. Come along and join in with the activities and shared lunch.  All classes involved will bring home a separate notice today.

Mid-Year Reports  

Mid-Year Reports will come home on Wednesday 6th July.  If your child has been at school for less than 6 weeks they will not receive a report, however, you can make a time with their teacher if you wish to discuss anything.

Please come and see us if there are any concerns about your child’s report or if you would like any further explanations.

Also while we try very hard to ensure reports are error free sometimes we can miss things.  Do not hesitate to come and show us any errors so we can alter them and give you an error free report.


School Photos

Our School Photos will be on Wednesday 21st September.


School Uniforms - compulsory

Next year we are making the wearing of school uniforms compulsory for all children.  We are currently trying to source a new, slightly cheaper option from The Warehouse but we do have uniforms in stock now that can be purchased at the office or time payments can be set up on line. Come and see us at the office for any queries please.



League practice is every Monday and Wednesday with Matua Ken Moka.  League is played Wednesday afternoons at 4pm.  All players must have shoes and a mouth guard

Special thanks to the whānau who attended the Rippa rugby game in Whangarei last Friday with Whaea Kelli.
