Whānau Survey 2018

Please try hard to complete the survey online OR alternatively we are sending home a paper copy today with all the whānau who do not appear to have completed it yet.

Friday Fun Day

A big thank you to the whānau that came along to support our Friday Fun Day. We were surprised by the response, the children loved it and whānau that came commented how relaxed and enjoyable it was. We are unsure about how many whānau visited classrooms and whether or not the timing of the day was good. Any whānau that have ideas about the day please contact us and let us know your thoughts.
