Tēnā Koutou Katoa

I hope everyone has enjoyed the break, especially our ākonga. Remember, we are starting our Winter Term so please ensure tamariki dress for the weather. For example, shoes, socks, warm jersey/jacket and a warm hat for the extra cold days. This will reduce the chance of them getting sick. Question: Have you named your child’s clothing? 

Students arriving before 8.15am: We have had students arrive before 8.15am. I would like to remind whānau, that students are not allowed on site until after 8.15am as this is for health and safety reasons.  If you have any concerns or questions, please contact the office.

Winter Term (Term 2 and 3) starts next term on the first day: School starts at the normal time of 8.45am; School finishes at the earlier time of 2.35pm. We offer supervision from 2.35pm until just after 3pm in Room 2 with Mr Zeylemaker for whānau who have work commitments. This is called the Late Bus Class. Contact the office to book a place for your tamariki. 

New whānau (families): We welcome all new families to our school, who did not previously attend our Term One celebration (Powhiri) to attend Monday’s Powhiri at 10.00am. This will involve a welcome in the hall followed by a hot drink and biscuits.

# Monday 29 April: School starts at 8.45am. Powhiri for all tamariki, whānau and staff will be in the hall at 10am. School finishes at 2.35pm – Winter Term hours continue for all of Term 2 and Term 3.
