New Junior Class for Term 3

Due to the high numbers in the Junior area of the school we are creating a new Junior (Year 1 and 2) possibly Bilingual learning space in Room 7 with Whaea Waiora who is returning from leave at the beginning of Term 3.  We have selected a few children we think would be best suited to be in this class however if whānau wish to request their child be in this class please get in touch with us.
