Newsletter 201819 - 21 June 2018


Welcome to our new tamariki and their whānau: Teyana Taylor.

Whānau Survey 2018

We want to show whānau that we have thought about your ideas in terms of improvements we can make. So this week we are replying (in blue) to comments on the following from whānau to share what we do and what we can do about the query shared.

Whānau Query: It is hard to know where the office area is if you are a new whānau.

Our response: We have ordered new office flags to signal to any visitors where the office is, we have also ordered new classroom signs as our older mosaic ones are falling to bits. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Hope this clarifies some of your queries and ideas, thank you.
