Tēnā koutou katoa (Greetings to everyone in the community),

We have had lots of exciting events occur over the last week. Our Year 7-8 Tamariki competed against Inglewood Primary School in the Burkhart Netball Final and Linkhorne Rugby Final. Although we lost both games, our tamariki played with manaakitanga. 

We had many tamariki competing in the Central Taranaki Cross Country. Look out for the next newsletter, which will have the results. The next running event on the school calendar is the Taranaki Champs in the last week of this term. 

Classes have been working hard practicing their dance for the filming sessions that occurs in Week 10. Each class is representing a country from the Commonwealth Games. Many classes have also been engaged in stimulating learning experiences involving bees, mystery eggs hatching, watching mould grow on their science experiments and learning about how the chickens support our recycling process. 

Finally, do not forget the Book Fair has started. Opening times are:

  • Before 8.55am
  • At lunchtime from 1 – 1.30pm
  • After school from 2.30 – 3.30pm.
