Bonjour à toutes nos familles

Noho marae Year 4, 5 and 6 - Wednesday 27 July - Pipitea Marae

Every year, we plan to take our Year 4s on a noho marae. However, we haven’t been able to do this in the last couple of years because of COVID so this year we will take our Year 4, 5 and 6s so no one misses out.  Next week we will be sending home more information and asking for parent help (which requires a police vetting form being filled out). 

School Camps

We have had our dates confirmed for our Year 5 - 8 camps this year. 

Year 5 & 6:  Forest Lakes, 31 August - 2 September

Year 7 & 8: Camp Makahika, 12 - 15 September

We will send out notifications and requests for parent help later on in the term. 

Teacher Only Day - Monday 30 May

Just a reminder that we have our Teacher Only Day this coming Monday. Hopefully some of you won’t have to work and can enjoy a long weekend with your lovely children.

School Photos next week

These are coming up on Wednesday and Thursday. Get those hair brushes out!

Notifying the office about absences

Please contact the office for absences. Sometimes teachers aren’t in the class first thing in the morning because of meetings or if they are off sick so getting in touch with the office is the best bet. You can email the office, phone or use the @school app to advise of your child’s absence. Thank you.
