The next holiday break will be at the end of Term 2, the last day of school will be Friday 7th July and will re-open for Term 3 on Monday 24th July.

Is your child turning 5 soon?

If you have a child at home almost ready to start school please come and see us to start the enrolment process. If you have your child's before school check? Plunket book? Birth certificate? Bring them with you otherwise get them to us later. It is important for your child to have a few visits to school before they turn 5 and we are happy to help make this happen. For Term 2 Whaea Tina in Room 1 will be receiving all newly enrolled children. If you have any queries at all don’t hesitate to contact us or call in to the office or into Room 1.

It’s Mother’s Day again and how better to let them know then to tell them how much they mean to us. Happy Mother’s day to all our mums.

My mum

My mum is the most beautiful person in the world. I will always love her forever in my life. She is a charming, kind person that loves me. When I am sad to her I always regret it because she does a lot of things for me.

I love my mum, no one will ever replace her. She is considerate, humble and I like that she stops to listen to me even when she is busy. My mum is the best and she is a good provider as we always have food and a roof over our heads.

I like that my mum takes me to exciting places. When she is down I try to do the same as she does for me. That is to make each other happy. My mum is the greatest and I love her.

Happy Mother’s day Mum.


My Mum

My Mum is the kindest woman I have ever known. She lets me have time with my friends. She always cares about me and feeds me and my family when we are hungry.

At night she always tucks me in when I'm going to bed. My Mum makes just enough time with me before I go to sleep and she gives me kisses all the time.

In the weekends Mum lets me play on her phone. She takes me to her job and gives me hair-cuts. She buys me shoes and gives me nice clothes. My mum has let me have a horse to ride.

I love my mum.

Happy Mother’s day.
