Message from the Principal

Kia ora katoa,

I have no words, just this awesome image of our canopy finally complete! Thank you for your patience. Room 13 students were excited to be the first to play underneath it last Thursday!

Next Step Interviews are this Tuesday/Thursday. A wonderful time to reconnect with your child’s teacher and to be updated on their progress and to celebrate their learning. Whilst we provide the opportunity to come in at a formal time three times, a year a reminder that you are welcome to connect with your child’s teacher at a time convenient to you both. This could be when there are more pressing matters to discuss and/or at times that require a longer meeting and discussion.

As some interviews begin just before 3.00pm please check below where students will be released from at 3.00pm on these days.


  • Year 0-2 Classrooms
  • Year 3 and 4 – PA room
  • Year 5 and 6 – School Hall


  • Year 0-2 Classrooms
  • Year 3 and 4 – PA room

Finally, remember if you miss a classroom notice, trip notice or similar, they are always available on our school website under “What’s On” and click “Team Notices”.

Have a great week!


Thanks to everyone who has sent in their donations, you still have until Friday 20 August to collect.

If there are any cash donations, remember to put the donations into an envelope with your child’s name and room number on it. Hand the envelope to your child’s class teacher on Thursday 19 August. Thursday is the only day we are handling the cash donations.

So far we have raised over $35,000. Thanks so much for your support.

The winner of the sports camera will be announced at the next formal school assembly.

Bake Sale

The Student Council are holding a bake sale on Daffodil Day to help raise money for Cancer Society.

Here is the sign up sheet if you would like to help. The more parents we have helping then the more baked goods we can sell to our students.

Thanks to those who have signed up already, I will be in contact this Tuesday with more information.
