Manawanui/Rangimarie to Te Hana

Last week the children had a great time at Te Hana and the Snow Planet. Here are a few pictures of their trip.


Bullying Incidents

A reminder to all Whanau that we do not like it when our children hurt each other, bully or intimidate others. Whaea Chicky will always follow up on incidents when they are brought to her attention. Please do not be afraid or worried to report any concerns you have by phone, text, email or in person.


Mid Year Progress Report

Please remember to come and see us if you have any worries or queries about your child’s report.  It is important to us that you are aware of where your child is at in terms of their learning and what we need to do next. If you need help or ideas for what you can do to help support your child’s learning at home come and see your child’s teacher/s.
