Week 11 Term 1, Thursday 14 April


Kia ora Families

We've made it to the end of the first term! Despite the challenges of Covid, we have managed to have a very successful eleven weeks.

Our children have been exceptional! A massive thank you to the children in Years 4-6 who have been required to wear masks over this period.

A huge thank you, as I say every term, to my wonderful teachers and support staff. You have all been so supportive and positive during these stressful times; our children are so lucky to have you all!

You will have seen from yesterday's notification that we are now at the orange traffic light setting. I will communicate our school specific protocols with you via the school app and seesaw at some point in the school break.

I wish you all a safe two weeks of term break and look forward to seeing children back on Monday 2 May.

Nga mihi,

An Electric car visits Onekawa School!

We were given an electric car to use for the day a few weeks ago!

Our year 4-6 children checked out the brand new $170,000 Jaguar I-Pace and learnt about it's features.

A huge thanks to the team at Integrated Energy for loaning us the car for the day!
