He mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa
Bonjour à toutes nos familles

Cross Country

This is the run of events for Tuesday. Due to Kiwi Hoops’ timetable, we’ve had to move it to the afternoon. Other than the first race (which will start with military precision), times are approximate so if you want to see your child run, come along for the afternoon! They all start and finish on the field.

Pre-loved clothing sale - keep those clothes coming in! 

Keep bringing those clothes and shoes in.  We do need a lot of quality stuff to make this a success so what better way to spend your weekend than channelling your inner Marie Kondo and getting those wardrobes (or floordrobes/chairdrobes) clear?  The box is now conveniently located in the office. 

Pink Shirt Day 

We are joining the movement on Pink Shirt Day (Friday 17 May 2024), and encouraging our staff and students to Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying!  Pink Shirt Day works to reduce bullying by celebrating diversity in all its forms and supporting schools, workplaces and communities to be safe, supportive, welcoming and inclusive for everyone.  Wear something pink if you want to join us! 

Support Staff Week

This is next week, so show our office staff and teacher aides the love (or chocolate/wine) to show you appreciate all their hard mahi!

Coffee Machine

We are looking to source a coffee machine so one of our in-house baristas can teach a small group of Year 7 & 8s how to make coffee. We are looking at running a little cafe before our mid-term and end of term hui from 8.30 until the assembly starts at 9.30. We would only need to borrow it for training and then on the assembly days. Let Sarah know if you can help.
