Some feedback re Reports 

Thank you to the whānau who have taken the time to give us some feedback about our Term 2 reports. We will be collating this and sharing some comments in the next newsletter. Meanwhile if you haven’t already done so visit our school FaceBook page and locate the survey to complete.

Free Lunches

We are working hard to encourage our school lunch providers to fit within the Ministry of Education guidelines and still make our lunches yummy. Hopefully meetings we are having and feedback we are sharing will improve our lunches so that most children eat what is provided and enjoy them.


We are looking forward to a performance by HUSH Dancers here tomorrow. Whaea Bo-Deene will be giving away some free class passes for Term 3. Please contact Whaea Bo-Deene directly for any information on Term 3 classes at her studio on Rankin Street by phoning 0211978871.
