Kia ora whanau

It's been an exciting week for our Year 6 students as they attended camp at the Guthrie Smith Centre in Tutira.

Our Year 5 children visited the aquarium this week and had lots of fun while learning lots!

The behaviour and attitudes of our children at both activities was outstanding. Congratulations children, I'm proud of you all!

I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to my amazing staff and parent helpers who made these experiences possible.

Have a lovely weekend.

Nga mihi nui,
