Kia ora koutou.  Hello everyone.

Well done to all the children on their fantastic art works shown in the hall last week and a huge thank you to all our families for coming along to both the Art Festival and Sharing the Learning. It was great to see so many families make the time to attend and to see and hear you around our school again and a lovely way to end the term. Have a restful holidays and see everyone again on 17th October.
