Congratulations go to our whanau on achieving so much in such a short term!
Camps, swimming sports, Kids Lit Quiz, Family Fiesta the list goes on….. In between this are
assessments, instructional reading, writing and mathematics, physical education programmes, digital
learning and science.
Friday evening’s Family Fiesta reflected our school culture in many ways – it was focused, it was fun
and it was about whanau.
Thank you so much to Nina, Carmen and Stacey and their team for bringing $11,500 into our future
– focused school. These extra funds enable us to provide the best opportunities for our learners.
In such a short term we have achieved so much and this will be celebrated on Thursday at 11am at
our final assembly
Happy Easter!
