KIA ORA/GREETINGS TO ALL PARENTS AND FRIENDS OF THE SCHOOL
Hard to believe we are already half way through the year again!! I am very pleased that we have passed the shortest day now and will hopefully shortly be looking forward to some spring weather. Just a reminder that I am on leave at the moment and if you need support our Deputy Principal Judy Belton is available.

MID YEAR REPORTS

Teachers are currently finalising mid year reports. Remember that these are not printed out and will be available through the @school portal link on our website next Thursday.
New parents should receive an email with their login details next week. I will be available to assist any parents who cannot log in during the first week of term 3. A reminder that all accounts can also be accessed through this portal.

 

THANK YOU

A huge mihi to all our tamariki, teachers and whanau of the school who made the Marae trip a success. We were very lucky with the weather and were able to have some activities outside. Nga mihi to Kura Kerepehi for their hospitality. Special mention also to our senior boys, Morgan and Calum for their whaikorero today. It is a privilege and honour to be able to speak on the marae. You both did us proud.
