School Holidays Projects

During the school holidays Matua JT replaced the roof over the hangi pit and installed 3 new rubbish bins.  We also received confirmation that the upgrade on Rooms 3 and 4 will go ahead in the Christmas holiday break.


Sadly last week Whaea Libby Harris who was a reliever at our school some time ago passed away. Our sincere condolences to her whanau at this sad time.

Whanau Hui/Survey Winners!

Last term during Whanau Hui we also sent home Whanau Hui Survey’s, survey’s that were returned were all put into the draw to win a yummy school lunch shout!

Our lucky winners were: Toa, Haki and Arihia.

Whanau Hui attendees also went into the draw to win a school polo shirt, congratulations also to Phoenix Bright who won themselves a snazzy new polo!

From the School Council

At our meeting last term the school councillors looked at providing a cheaper jacket option following responses from Whanau.  They looked at many options, we washed and dried samples and have decided to go with what we think is the best option.  

These hoodies will be available soon. They are $30 each and will come in a variety of sizes.  The manufacturers have said that they do not recommend them being dried in a dryer.
