Welcome to the start of Term 3

We hope you have had a wonderful two weeks giving your tamariki time to refresh and recharge after another tough term. 

We have a very packed term 3 with many events and activities already planned.
Parent/ Teacher conversations on the 2nd and 3rd of August. Click the link to book a time. 

Mask Wearing: It is been highly publicised that the MOE is recommending that students aged in Year 4 and above to be wearing face masks. This will be our stance for the coming weeks in it being recommended. Teachers will have supplies available in the classroom spaces and it will be recommended that they are worn. This is to continue to help reduce the disruption to learning through illness.

Our aim is to continue to keep learning as normal as possible and have as little disruption as we can manage in classroom settings. At times we may find it hard to have classes covered by the regular teacher or a reliever and in these instances, we will be sharing students amongst other classes to ensure they can continue with their learning.

We have a great term planned with Wearable Arts, Sports Exchanges and some EOTC events already well underway with the organisation. We look forward to sharing the learning with you. 


We had intended to have reports going out today but have had some technical problems with printing.

We will endeavor to have them come home tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience.
