KIA ORA/GREETINGS TO ALL PARENTS AND FRIENDS OF THE SCHOOL

I hope that everyone enjoyed their long weekend!  Our junior classes are all in their new classrooms now and we are just awaiting the new furniture.

The weather is still incredibly hot and teachers allow students back into classrooms at lunchtimes to keep out of the heat along with free swims when they can.  It is great to see so many students bringing water bottles and they are encouraged to keep hydrated during class time as well. (Water only thanks)
