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

Everyone is getting back into routine and have settled into their new classrooms.  The Board has held it’s first meeting and would like to welcome our families to a Meet and Greet on Wednesday 10th March.  We will start the night with a swim at 6.00pm and then there will be the opportunity to talk with teachers and participate in the Learning Through Play experience in the Junior School and The Garden to Table programme in the Senior School.  The Board will provide a sausage sizzle for families too!

KEA CROSSING

Our Road Wardens have now been trained and we remind parents that the Kea Crossing is supervised every morning from 8.30am until 8.45am .  Hauraki Road can be very busy and we would encourage parents to ensure students are crossing during this time to ensure their safety.
