Term 3 starts Monday 17th July and ends Friday 22nd September

Kia ora koutou.  Hello everyone.

Welcome back to term 3 and a special warm welcome to all new families and children to the school this term. 

Maths Curriculum open morning 
On Tuesday 8th August we invite parents to come into classes between 9am and 10am and see maths in action. You can see how maths is taught in class and maths games and activities that support learning in maths will be available for parents to play with their child. Parents don’t have to stay the whole hour if they are not able to, this is an informal invitation to see maths in an everyday setting.

Whole School 50th Jubilee Variety Show – advance notice of dates

Our whole school Variety Show is back! We would normally hold this event once every three years but due to Covid restrictions we are a year later than planned. However, the timing is perfect as the show reflects our 50th Jubilee and will celebrate the performing arts through dance/drama using music from the past five decades.

More details about performance times, tickets and times for your children to be at school for the evening performances etc will come shortly. Below are the performance dates for your diaries:

Tuesday 22nd August Matinee Performance

Wednesday 23rd August Matinee Performance and Evening Performance

Thursday 24th August Evening Performance
