Lost property

We have lots of togs, towels and jumpers amongst other really lovely clothes that belong to someone in the lost property box. The box is at the back of the school hall, please feel free to pop in and have a look for yourselves.  Children will have a look during school time as well with their classes. Any lost property left over at the end of term will be donated to charity.

Sand Play Equipment

The Yimage.pngear 1 sandpit area is always a hive of activity, but we are short of equipment for the children to use. If you have any of the following at home and would like to donate it to our tamariki to play with we would be very grateful.
Large metal cooking utensils eg spoons, mashers, baking trays,metal bowls, muffin tins.
Sandpit toys – spades, buckets, sandpit vehicles etc
Donations can be taken to Mrs Barker in Room 4
