Term 1 ends at 3pm on Thursday 6th April

(Waitangi Day observed Monday 6th February, Good Friday 7th April) 

Kia ora koutou.  Hello everyone.

We hope you and your family are safe and well in the current circumstances. We realise school has not started yet, but thought this information would be useful for you to have before school starts tomorrow.

Meet the teacher evenings 2023 – note change of dates due to school starting later

One of the first whole school events this year is Meet the Teacher Evenings now on 15th and 16th February 2023 – you should go to your child’s classroom. We would really like to start the year by seeing as many of you as we can and it will be a great way of seeing the classroom space your child will be in.

We have changed the way we will run Meet the Teacher, taking into consideration feedback from families who could not attend every class their children are in as the times clashed. We now have two evenings with a separate time for each year level.
