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

ALERT Level 2
As we find ourselves in Level 2, we are following the Ministry of Health's advice.

There will be sanitiser at the door of each entrance into a school building. Your child will need to sanitise their hands before they enter a building. If at all possible, we ask that parents and caregivers do not come inside. When this is necessary, please sign in on the clipboard at the entrance to the room (in case contact tracing is necessary). You will also need to sanitise your hands.

We would like to make it as easy as possible for adults who come on to the school grounds to maintain social distance both in the school grounds and outside on the footpath. One of the ways to do this is to limit the time that adults spend at school. Please be as quick as you can when dropping off and picking up in the school grounds. Unfortunately this includes leaving school quickly after 3 o'clock and not letting your child play in the playground after school.

For more information about schools at Level 2, you can go here. Please keep your children home if they are sick and also remember not to panic buy toilet paper. You don't have enough cupboard space for that!

At ALERT level 2, our school office is closed. Please make all enquiries by phone (04 939 8771) or by email (
