Extra Parent Helpers needed for Camp please for Wed & Thurs

Tue Dec 06 10:43am

Kia ora koutou,

We would love to have some extra parent helpers for camp please.  Day trips are also welcome. 7am-6pm.  Loads of fun and the more parent helpers, the smaller the groups can be to allow for extra turns at each station.  

Please call the school on 09 483 9168 if you are interested.

Kia pai tō ra, Ngā mihi nui!

Have a great day, thank you very much.


Softball Trip Canceled tomorrow

Whānau Classes this Week

Sun Nov 27 05:55pm

Kia ora e te whānau,

We have several staff away this week due to illness including covid.  We have decided to have a week of whānau class learning to ensure that all students have consistency with teachers and learning this week.  It has not been possible to find relief teachers to cover classes for the entire week.

For most classes, they will have their own whānau teacher for the week.  However, there are some changes that have made to ensure that students have one teacher for the week rather than a series of different relievers.

We have also decided not to cancel the art and hard technology programmes as many students have projects that need to be completed this week.

Whānau 6 will have Miss Dooley for the week.
Whānau 11 and 12 will be together with Whaea Tui and Whaea Journey
Whānau 17 will have Mrs Hedges for the week
Whānau 19 is being split across the school and students will stay with a given whānau class for the week.  They will have art and hard tech at their usual times.  

We have made these arrangements to ensure students have a known teacher for the week.  A school wide learning programme has been devised to ensure consistency of learning and subject coverage.  We will have relief teachers in during the week as well.

On Wednesday afternoon we will have a school wide focus on preparing for EOTC and Camp week.  

Fingers crossed that the weather improves and that everyone who is unwell is able to rest and recover.  

Ngā mihi nui,

Zig zag ‘cross the floor
Shuffle in diagonal
When the drum hits hands on your hips
One-footed 180 twist
And then a zig zag, step’n, slide
Lean in left to clap, three times
Shake it out, head to toe
Throw it all together, that’s how we roll
