Term 1 Camp

We are currently planning for all classes to go to Kokohuia Marae during week 6 & 7 (6th - 16th March), more information to follow. This is a new date and has been confirmed by the Marae. It is envisaged that the Senior, Middle classes and Manawanui will stay at the marae for one or two nights.

Their trip will involve pōwhiri at the marae, a trip to Tāne Māhuta, beach activities including swimming and maybe a boat trip across to the sand dunes.

Detailed information will come home with next Wednesday’s newsletter and will require all whānau  to sign permission for their tamariki to attend.

The Junior classes (except Manawanui) will go to the marae just for the day. Their trip will involve pōwhiri, beach/swim activities then back to the school by 2.30pm.

Buses for all trips will leave the school at 9.15am, and all trip costs will be covered by the school.
