Kia ora Tātou

There are two things on my mind in particular this week


The first would have to be the fantastic display we had on Wednesday at Boyd Park. All four of our teams have made it into the Rippa Rugby Finals at Paeroa on Wednesday 29th of June. We are so fortunate to have such dedicated and talented students and parents! The support for our teams was awesome and all of our coaches were amazing. Thank you to everyone who gave up time to come along and cheer on our teams!

The second thing on my mind this week is our Support Staff! We are truly blessed here at Stanley Ave with an amazing teaching staff, however it is our support team that keeps us all going, and able to do what we do. To Kim, Mel, Robbin, Kelly, Lyn, Kathy, and Kat:- Thank you so much for all the love, care and time that you pour into our school, our staff and most importantly our students. We appreciate you all so much!

Have a great weekend everyone and Kia Kaha! We all make such a great team together!

Lost hearing Aids!!

One of our students has lost her hearing aids and we are asking our community to keep an eye out.

They are similar to the picture - one is blue & one is white - they were in a dark grey case.

If you see these, could you please drop them into the office. They are very important for her comfort and to help with learning.

Thanks very much!
