Kia ora koutou.  Hello everyone.

Jammies in June

Jammies in June was again a success with over 80 pairs of pyjamas sent to Middlemore hospital and a total of $350 donated in cash. Many thanks for supporting this cause. As well as the obvious benefit for the children in need, our own children have learned more about the conditions others live in and had a huge amount of fun on PJ day too!

Lost property

We have a huge pile of lost property in the box at the back of the hall. Teachers will be taking the children to have a look but if you wish to pop into the hall yourselves you are welcome. Any lost property left at the end of term will be given to charity.

Coming to school early

A reminder that children are not supposed to be at school before 8:15am in the morning. Before then teachers are busy preparing for the day ahead and in various meetings.
