He mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa - warm greetings to all.

Welcome to Term 4. We wish it was a warmer start to the term and didn't expect to need the heating on in this summer term!

We are pleased to share with you a short 5 minute video

Volunteers for the bike track

Touch Rugby

Is anyone interested in playing Touch Rugby? It's a fun sport, which is great for teaching team work, fair play and sportsmanship. Currently we have a Y1/2 team, a Y3/4 team and a Year 5/6 team. We have mixed teams with boys and girls playing together. It would be great if we could have a couple more players in each grade so that we can have some subs (it gets pretty tiring having to be out there for a whole game!) It's a great atmosphere, there's a sausage sizzle and we have some great kids playing already. Cost is usually around $25-31 and depends on how many players we have (it won't be any more expensive but can get cheaper if we have lots of players!). Practices are at lunchtime on Fridays. The season runs for 6 weeks and is starting on the 28th of October. We play at Wakefield Park, which is the turf on the way to Island Bay on Wednesday afternoons between 4 and 6pm.
