Congratulations Dance group and budding artists!


Many congratulations to our dance group who performed at the Bruce Mason Theatre in Takapuna last night as a part of the Northern Bays Schools Performing Arts Festival. It was a fantastic show, much enjoyed by all. Thank you to teachers Nicola Couch, Kate Koman and Karen Halkyard for training the group. Thank you also to the children whose art work forms part of the display in the Theatre and to teacher Helen Barlow for displaying the work so beautifully.

Jammies for June

Once again we will be happy to collect pairs of new pyjamas for the Middlemore Foundation’s Jammies for June appeal.  The Foundation aims to provide PJs for children admitted to hospital during the winter months that do not have  any at home. They take from size 0-16 years. This year you can also donate new blankets, socks or hot water bottles as well. There is a box in the front office where these items can be placed between Monday 29th May and Friday 23rd June if you would like to donate.

Lost Property

Our lost property box is full! Please feel free to have a look if your child has lost items this term, the box is at the back of the school hall. Any lost property left at the end of term will be donated to charity.

Board meeting

The next Board meeting will be held on Monday 26th June at 7pm in the administration building. Please contact the school office if you wish to attend.
