Happy New Year

Welcome back. I do hope you and your family enjoyed your summer break.

It has been wonderful to begin the new school year and to catch up with students

and whanau after our long summer break.

During January our old classroom block, on the lower playground, was demolished and the area was asphalted. It is going to be exciting to see the lower playground developed over the coming year.

Bernice and Cathie have moved into Ruma Ti in the main building (that’s the classroom beside the library).

Our Year 5 – 8 students (that’s Ray, Walter, Tessa, and Mathew’s classes) are all established in the new classroom block. Ray and Walter’s classes are known as Ruma Pohutukawa and Tessa and Mathew’s classes are known as Ruma Manuka.

Anna and Will are our Year 3 & 4 teachers. Their classes are both in East block (that’s Ruma Nikau and Ruma Kauri).

Kristin and Kate are teaching our Year 1 and 2 students. You will find them in the main block in Ruma Tawa and Ruma Tarata.

Matai returns to being our assembly space. We are looking forward to gathering in there on a Friday afternoon. The Year 8s were very happy on our first day to reclaim the white seats to sit on (a tradition interrupted last year when Matai was a classroom).

New entrant enrolments 

If you have neighbours or near neighbours who have a child turning five later this year or in 2022 can you please encourage them to contact the school office to make a time to visit the school and to get an enrolment form?
