Senior Camp notice

Last week all Seniors took home a detailed newsletter about their end of year camp.  Whānau are encouraged to discuss expectations with their child/children leading up to this event as there are Year 6 children who are currently not meeting their classroom learning and or behaviour expectations and may not be able to attend.  Teachers will be in contact with whānau about any children who are causing concern to discuss options.


Concerns and complaints

If you have concerns that you wish to discuss, contact the office and make an appointment to meet the principal or see your child’s teacher in the first instance.

If you think that your concerns are not being addressed, a complaint should be made, in writing, to the chairperson of the board of trustees:
