Principal's Message

Tena Koutou Parents and Caregivers, 

A very big thank you to all the people who supported our house tabloids. You would have noticed the awesome leadership that was displayed by many of our senior students on the day. This is an example of the positive effect of the week long leadership training that our students participated in. Another example is the number of senior students who have put their hands up to be this years school leaders. The announcement of these leaders will be made at this coming Monday’s assembly.

 In anticipation I would like to thank all those who will come to school on Wednesday and participate in our Meet and Greet. Please check our school app or website if you are unsure of times.

We have approximately 90% of our students in correct uniform, however only about 60% are wearing the correct footwear. Can I please remind you that the summer sandal is a Roman sandal. With the shoe being the following.

On Friday we will be holding our school Athletic Championships. We look forward to seeing as many whanau as possible on the day.

The classes have settled where there is a positive working tone. Years 3 to 8 this week are baseline testing. This will ensure that teachers have up to date data in which to help plan the learning and teaching of your child/ren.

We value your contributions and look forward to a positive year.
