Sports Assembly

Many thanks to whanau who came along to our Sports Assembly last week to acknowledge our sporting success particularly in Cross Country and Hockey.


2014 School Organisation

Staff are currently considering our class/school organisation for 2014. If any Whanau have any ideas about next year do not hesitate to phone us and tell us about them, email, text or send your ideas to the office. Once we know what classes teachers will have we will ask Whanau to let us know if they have a preference for the class their child/children are in.


Holiday Reading

So that children can continue to read over the school holiday, we are encouraging them to borrow books from the school library that they can keep at home until term 4. An invitation is also extended to the families of our children to borrow books. The library will be open to children and whanau today and tomorrow, when Mrs Maihi will be available to issue books. I hope that you will come along and see the large range of books we have, and choose some good holiday reading.
