Measles is spreading around the North Island, after an outbreak in Hamilton.

Measles is VERY infectious - and if you are not immune, there is a high chance you will get sick.

The best protection is to have measles vaccination.

Please encourage your tamariki to come along and enjoy breakfast with their friends. If there are any parents or whānau who can volunteer their time to help monitor breakfast club even if it’s once a term your contribution will be much appreciated.


Pioneer Village Trip

Rooms 14 and 4 will be going to visit The Pioneer Village on Monday 25th August as part of our “Change” inquiry, further information will come home closer to the date.


Kids Can supplies

During the holidays we received a new lot of supplies including:

Food snacks, shoes/jackets for new children, kutu lotion.

If Whānau wish to use the kutu lotion products they will need to come and collect them from the office please. It would be unsafe to send them home with children.

We also have a supply of bread (frozen and sometimes fresh) so do not hesitate to come in and get some bread if you need any, we would rather it be eaten and used than go to waste or to a pig bucket.


Bo-Deene’s Hip Hop

Hip hop classes every Friday afternoon at our school hall.  Junior classes preferably 8 -12yrs but flexible from 4-5pm $5 a class or $35 for the term and Teens/ Adults 5 – 6pm $8 a class or $50 for the term.
